> but this doesn't specifically address the fact that a pull-based control plane will fail in a different way, and one that is potentially harder to diagnose, from a push-based one. One area in which it differs is that a loss of a BGP session followed by a network partition is obvious to all users trying to move traffic between those two networks, while choking off control plane traffic in LISP may only affect some endpoints in a mysterious way.

IMO, a feature and not a bug. And arguably harder to diagnose makes it more secure.
