... FB: Perhaps a picture can help - see attached. The example shows a 5 node setup:
* Node A is the encap node; node E is the decap node; nodes B,C,D are transit nodes. The node data list [i] array is abbreviated with ndl[i].
* We have a setup with a mix of software (SW - using preallocated trace Option-Type) and hardware (HW - using incremental trace Option-Type) forwarders.
* The encap node inserts trace option types for both flavors (pre-allocated and incremental). For pre-allocated, we make room for an array of three hops. 
* The picture gives a view of the packet at 3 tap points:
1) After nodes A and B: You see the two buckets, one for incremental-tracing, one for pre-allocated tracing. In both buckets, there one field of the node data list filled.
2) After node C, which is a software forwarder, an additional field in the node data list of the pre-allocated tracing bucket got filled.
3) After node D, which is a hardware forwarder, an additional field in the node data list of the incremental tracing bucket got allocated and filled.
* Node E would simply strip the IOAM information from the packet and forward it to some controller/collector. draft-spiegel-ippm-ioam-rawexport is one example of how to handle export using IPFIX. Note that node E would not do any interpretation of the data. It just strips it from the packet and ships it.

...FB: I would really wish you were right. The issue is that we all have the IPv6 extension header example in mind, which started to put pointers into packets, requiring pointer lookup to properly parse extension headers... You know how long it took the industry to come up with basic support for HbyH or routing extension headers in hardware. We're still in the middle of this journey.
This is pretty much what drove the design for two different types of "buckets" - so that forwarders can insert the information into the bucket that suits them.

...FB: Agree that we'd need to add a statement that encap/decap nodes SHOULD be able to insert/remove both trace Option-Types, because on encap/decap the effort between forwarders is comparable.
Per my note above, there is no need for the decap node to do any type of consolidation. It would just strip the different option types, and there could be additional ones, like POT or E2E Option-Types and ship the information to some controller/management station for further processing.

...FB: The integrity discussion only started recently - likely because the current deployments of early IOAM / or similar implementations are within "limited domains". We also need to ack the cost of signing the IOAM data, which is not negligible.

...FB: You can group devices which use a particular unit for buffers into the same namespace. This is what namespaces are for. 
The backend system would maintain a mapping of what unit is used for buffers for a particular namespace.

...FB: Good point. Let's see what other folks think - whether we should keep things as they are, or leverage the fields to grow the seconds range.
