Hi John,

The suggested text seems reasonable. 

I will glance through the draft to see if any other section needs updating in lieu of this change.

Rajiv

    Hi Rajiv,
    
    In reviewing draft-ietf-idr-bgp-bestpath-selection-criteria-07, I note section 3 has:
    
       The mechanism(s) to perform the "path availability" check and the
       selection of particular data plane are a matter of a policy and
       outside the scope of this document.
    
    RS-BFD represents an instance of a specific path availability check and selection of data plane. Based on that, it seems to me the RS-BFD could add something like the following in the introduction:
    
       [I-D.ietf-idr-bgp-bestpath-selection-criteria] discusses enhancement
       of the route resolvability condition of section 9.1.2.1 of [RFC4271]
       to include next hop reachability and path availability checks.  This
       specification represents in part an instance of such, implemented
       using BFD as the OAM mechanism.
    
    If you have other suggestions for text, please send them.
    
    Thanks,
    
    --John
