I have seen a framework slide showing IRS Agent withing the router.

I would like to clarify if you are going to have such IRS Agent in each 
router participating in given (maybe new) service in the AS ? How many 
IRS clients your envision ?

Is the model of 1000s of IRS agents talking to 10s of IRS clients as 
example ?


Is data currently distributed by routing protocols explicitly prohibited 
to be also distributed by IRS overlay and send to the routers by TBD IRS 
channel ?

Thx a lot !
