Hi Bruno, Ilya, Robert,
Hi idr list,

the next-hop-capability draft currently seems to target using the new
nexthop capability on a per-advertisement level.  Considering that
draft-idr-bgp-nh-cost adds a new SAFI to convey information about
nexthops, it seems natural to tranposrt the capability information in
that place?

(That would also remove the question of what behaviour should be when
you get different advertisements with the same nexthop, but with a
different nexthop capability attribute.)
