I just went through draft-saucez-lisp-impact-07.txt. Section 3 has some really good research and is explained well to understand the conclusion of the research. I applaud the authors for that.

A comment or request for a reference, since you are talking about multicast replication engineering here you may want to add lisp-te as a reference here:

You should also add to this:

That there are signaling approaches like you indicated in RFC6831 as well as using LISP to signal in a reference to lisp-mr-signalling as well as using a signal-free approach as in lisp-signal-free-multicast. Those references would prove useful to readers.

Other than that, this is a really well written document and ready for next step IMO.
