----------------------------------------------------------------------
DISCUSS:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for the work put into this document. The short document is easy to
read even if I wonder whether it is useful to spend time on IPv4-only protocol
;-)

The deployment issue (section 5) has raised a DISCUSS of mine and I would
appreciate a reply on this DISCUSS.

Regards,

-éric

== DISCUSS ==

-- Section 5 --
The risk of having inconsistent view of the topology with H-bit aware and
unaware routers seems possible to me (albeit perhaps only transient). Has this
feature been tested / simulated in large scale networks?


----------------------------------------------------------------------
COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Feel free to ignore my COMMENTs and NIT.

== COMMENTS ==

-- Generic --
Mentioning that the H-bit of OSPFv2 is the reverse of the R-bit of OSPFv3 would be useful.

-- Section 1 --
A description of "Closet Switches" would be welcome.

-- Section 3 --
Isn't the wording "host router" an oxymoron ?


== NITS ==

-- Section 8 --
I recommend reading and following the suggestions of RFC 8126 (how to write the IANA considerations)
