The way the underlay paths are computed for a given BIER sub-domain is determined by the pair of codepoints: <IGP Algorithms codepoint, BIER Underlay Algorithm Modifier codepoint>.

The value zero in this field would mean "just use the IGP Algorithms field to figure out how the underlay paths are computed."  Non-zero values could be used to add additional nuance.  Existing drafts can say "the use of non-zero values in this field is outside the scope of this document".

There is also the IGP registry defined in an SR document (though not necessarily exclusively for SR use) which defines 8 bit values.

We are chartering LSR now - should we add registry for all IGP algorithms, we have routing WG, others?  Would like to hear AD’s opinion. Note that although LSR appears obvious, the algorithms to compute BIER may be controller-based that do bot require LSR (same applies to SR).

We have implementations of both technologies, so are changes to those warranted or is it too late and we should pursue independent  alg definition and registry as it has been set-up in the existing drafts. And we are talking only of those two but more WG will come and want to define things for them as well.

The reason for me to support 16 bits is that everybody seemed ok go move forward with an 8bits BAR without a registry, a 16bits BAR does not change anything, its just a bigger field. But at least with 16bits, we can split in Type, Value, and support different use-cases. IMO, pointing to whatever the Unicast underlay is providing is the main use-case, but it allows other ways to do things.

The main question (I think) is whether we document how a 16bit BAR is carved up now, or we defer that to later. And as I said, since everybody seemed ok with 8bit BAR without a registry, I don’t see why its now different for 16bits. It gives us time to workout exactly how to use it and get input from the WGs.

If anyone is expecting to use this registry outside of the scope of this draft, it would be in their best interest to pull the registry description out into a separate draft.

We are not talking IGP registry or multicast computation registry or SR registry then but a "wider scope registry". Yes, that is an intriguing thought with its own validity but outside the scope of charter we're under as BIER.  Personally, I consider multiple, if needed loosely coupled registries for each technology a less centralized and hence "more Internet like" solution but I see how opinions on such a thing can diverge ...
