This document is clearly requesting the assignment of LISP EID space for
an experiment.  Why is it not an Experimental document?  [I may have
missed the discussion in the archive.]

Along the same lines, the conditions for the experiment to be successful
and the IETF to consider whether to transform the prefix into a permanent
assignment (Section 6.  3+3 Allocation Plan) are not defined.  How should
this decision be made?  How will the IETF know the experiment is


An early allocation was made in October/2015.  The values should be
included in the document.

The dates mentioned assumed a start date of December/2015, but the
document isn't getting approved until now — is there a need to change the
dates?  Just wondering — part of it is that I'm not sure if RIPE has
already started allocating addresses or not.

Please expand ROA and put in a reference.
