Hi James,

The routing system components are certainly part of a router's control
plane - but not all of it.  The idea of IRS involves sub-interfaces to
the different layers in the routing system.

Can you clarify what you are asking as it relates to ForCES and IRS?
I don't feel that we're on the same page yet.

The last time I looked, these protocols were all involved in routing control and therefore could reasonably be characterized as components of the control plane, IMHO.
