Hi Olivier, 
I think the WG's energy has been completely focused on the dynamic flooding and these WG last calls didn't get the deserved attention. 

As for as your comments, the first two were discussed for over a year and half. There were other advantages as well. For example, the link attribute encoding reduced (OSPFv2) or eliminated (OSPFv3) the need to correlate LSA attributes for a single link. We will note your objection in the shepherds report on the documents. We could even include a pointer to your quagga code that took a different approach if you wish to provide one. 

With respect to your comments on BGP-LS, this is out of scope for LSR. While I haven't seen NLRI that hits the limit, I'm confident that the IDR WG will come up with a solution.

    Dear all
    As there is no more exchange about the two mentioned drafts since 3 weeks, I'll try to summarize the exchange and
    the requested modifications.
    The drafts proposed to extended IS-IS respectively OSPF to advertise new TE parameters to overcome 2 issues:
     1 - Topology incongruence between the IGP and TE
     2 - Provide different parameters per application
    For the first point, topology incongruence is not due to the protocol itself but to the fact that an operator
    may activate or not TE information on all links of its network. Indeed, RFC3630 and RFC5305 precise that TE
    information are Optionals.
    However, in both drafts, the term RECOMMENDED is used, which IMHO not solve the problem. An operator keeps the choice
    to activate or not this new TE information leading again to an incongruence network topology. At least, wording
    need to be change to MUST or MANDATORY. But, why not just change the wording of RFC3630 and RFC5305 ?
    In addition, no operator express explicitly that their are concern by topology incongruence.
     => Introduction sections should be improved to better justify why we need to modify TE link advertisement
     => Wording must be revise to avoid incongruence topology
    For the second point, TE information are related to a link not an application even if at the origin, RFC3630 and RFC5305
    were design for RSVP-TE. It is not mention in the RFCs that they could not be applicable to other protocol / application.
    If the idea, in liaison to first point, it to determine is an application / protocol is enable / disable on a given link,
    even if their have been not selected, drafts draft-hegde-ospf-advertising-te-protocols-01.txt and
    draft-hegde-isis-advertising-te-protocols-03.txt are largely sufficient as it is not necessary to duplicate link TE
    information. In addition, Router Information already provides indication on the support of SR by this router (presence
    of SRGB) where all IGP links are de-facto SR enable.
    Then, GMPLS specific attributes are not taken into account in these drafts.
     => GMPLS must be considered as another application and specific GMPLS attribute must be part of the drafts
     => or standardised only SABML / UDABML flags without duplicating TE information
    Network operational transition issues are poorly address in these drafts. Indeed, router upgrade
    take time in large scale network (several weeks even several months) leading cohabitation of the 2 systems which
    introduce a large degree of complexity for operators for network management.
     => Improve migration section to help operator during the transition phase
    And finally, if we go a bit further, dealing with SDN, all these new TE information need to be learnt by and SDN
    controller e.g. a PCE, which naturally conduct to use BGP-LS for this purpose. However, recent discussion in idr WG
    mention that there is already too many attributes that have been standardised dealing with problem with the maximum
    size of BGP message. These new TE information will also certainly appear as duplicate regarding RFC7752 and RFC8571.
    So, I would ask authors of both drafts to know how they intend to manage this problem ?
    For us, if these new TE information could not be learnt through BGP-LS, there is no interest to use them.
