  As modern networks grow in scale and complexity, the need for rapid
  and dynamic control increases.  With scale, the need to automate even
  the simplest operations is important, but even more critical is the
  ability to quickly interact with more complex operations such as
  policy-based controls.

  In order to enable applications to have access to and control over
  information in the Internet's routing system, we need a publically
  documented interface specification.  The interface needs to support
  real-time, transaction-based interactions using efficient data models
  and encodings.  Furthermore, the interface must support a variety of
  use cases including those where verified control feed-back loops are

  This document expands upon these statements of requirements to
  provide a problem statement for an interface to the Internet routing
