You’re welcome. I try to get people’s names right when I can. I’m sure I often fail, but I do try.

I’m not dead set against having a table in the front material of Section 3, but I think it’s probably better for an implementor to refer to the actual IANA Registry, which is also tabular, and is guaranteed to be up-to-date. An earlier reviewer (Alvaro) expressed a marked preference for having the code named in line with the relevant section, and that makes sense, so on the whole I think it’s better to stick with the current structure. I think your alternate suggestion is to identify the code in the relevant heading, as in "The Tunnel Egress Endpoint Sub-TLV (type code 6)”? I’m OK with that but it would make the headings (and ToC) busier, and I’m not sure it really helps the document’s readability. I’m open to further input but at the moment I’m leaving it as written.
>

Adopted — so now the type codes are in the headings and removed from the prose, it seems unnecessary to have them both places, except in the case of the Encapsulation sub-TLV where it seemed helpful for clarity to mention the type code in the prose as well.

I guess if some child-of-VXLAN spec were to be written that used 64-bit addresses, or variable-length addresses, or whatever, then a new sub-TLV would have to be introduced that properly expressed that. So yeah, the document per se is limited to a set of data-link layers, but it’s extensible for new data-links.

There are just a couple that don’t now have explicit lengths, and those are given either in the adjacent text (DS Value), or in the reference which is the authoritative source (MPLS Label Stack).

Great, now I’m hungry. :-)
