The intention of the draft charter is to seed the list of use cases.
The charter that you all put forward to the IESG (if you have consensus to form
a WG) needs to have an agreed list of use cases that the WG will work on.
IMHO, this needs to be a closed list for initial work, with a way to add further
use cases if needed. I also think that the list in the charter needs to be a
fairly short list, and that will require the group to determine where its wants
to focus.

The draft charter says “at least”. Thus in my reading of this, the current
proposed text does not preclude other use cases. 
On the other hand, I think that initially, after the WG is chartered and starts
operating as a WG (assuming that this happens), we need to be careful to avoid
trying to take on so much work that we don’t succeed in finishing any of it. 
(speaking only as an interested individual, giving my personal opinion)

 I have a question on working item 2:
“The working group is chartered to work on the following items:
2.       Tightly scoped key use cases for operational use of IRS. These use
cases will include at least:
a.       Interactions with the RIB
b.      Association of routing policies with routing state
c.       The ability to extract information about topology from the network
Does this bullet exclude the possibility to use IRS to gather information about
network measurements such as available bandwidth on a link, information related
to jitter delay for specific flows etc. ?

Attached (in Word format) is a very rough initial draft charter (for a potential
IRS WG) that the BOF chairs have been discussing with our friendly sponsoring
routing area AD. 
Comments are welcome. We will be discussing the draft IRS WG charter in Atlanta.

Thanks, Ross
