I think the bigger question – from the standpoint of WG adoption – is do we really believe there is a need for this extension?

There was a time when IS-IS was being considered as the homenet protocol – that ship seems to have sailed.
So the question becomes do we really think there is a deployment where these extensions will be needed? If the answer to that is yes, then I am convinced that the direction this draft has taken is the right one and we should then do the diligence necessary to finish the job.
But if the answer is “no” then this does not seem a worthwhile use of our time.

David (and/or others) – can you comment on this?

I sent good amount of comments on the draft a while ago. While I support adoption I think those need addressing to ensure correctness of the draft ... tony
