As agreed during the IESG telechat, holding a DISCUSS until the new YANG
security considerations template including RESTCONF is agreed upon.


- No objection to the publication, but the following phrasing puzzles

   It aims to be consistent with the
   LMAP Information Model [I-D.ietf-lmap-information-model].

Actually, the data model is based on information model, right?

>From the charter:
5. The Report protocol and the associated data model: The definition of

how the Report is delivered from a MA to a Collector; this includes a 
Data Model consistent with the Information Model plus a transport 
protocol (to be selected, perhaps REST-style HTTP(s) or IPFIX).

This is reason why the information model is standard track in the
Therefore the information model must be a normative reference, right?

- one question about the typedefs naming.
It would nice to be able to reuse YANG constructs, typedefs being of
We created http://www.yangcatalog.org/yang-search/yang-search.php with
that goal in mind.
	=> insert "identifier"
	=> select typedef
Some of the typedefs are so generically named in LMAP YANG module:
identifier, tag, cycle-number, wildcard, etc.
Do you expect YANG designers to reuse them outside of LMAP? Some of them,
I guess so
Should the other ones be renamed with LMAP in mind. Ex:
In other words, are all the ietf-lmap-common.yang typedef common?
