This was a question as opposed to an argument as I was trying to find
all possible security issues to assist with adding a security
considerations section.  I do see that path exposure is covered by the
security considerations in other is-is documents.

Will these be referenced then in the security consideration section
for completeness as it is still an issue?

Thank you,

However we have never linked the progress of the two documents together - it is often the case that one document is written and proceeds before the other.

But why this is deemed an issue for the progression of the IS-IS draft is a mystery to me.
