Hi Joel,

I will restate here what I said in the LISP WG meeting in Dallas when
you brought this up.

Since the recharter of NVO3 was made, it opened up other WGs to tailor
their protocols to meet the NVO3 control plane use cases/requirements.
The BESS WG has already made substantial progress in accommodating these
requirements as part of EVPN.

I believe that the scalability properties of the LISP protocols also have
promise to provide a very scalable solution to the NVO3 requirements.
Because of this, I would like to see the LISP WG recharter include the
NVO3 use cases.  Additionally, I can see LISPĀ¹s flexibility useful for
enhancing basic Network Virtualization by serving as a control plane for
SFC as well, especially in conjunction with NVO3 overlays.

Thanks, Larry
