This document seems to say “use “Do not Reply” reply mode, and even if you reply do not use the BFD Disc TLV, because it is not used.

Wouldn’t it be simpler to say “follow RFC 8029, and the ingress does not care about the BFD Disc TLV in the reply”? This would not suddenly make uncompliant existing implementations, potentially.

Also I wonder if this should be bfd-mpls instead of mpls-bfd, given where RFC 5884 was advanced.

Dear All,
this new document proposes clarification of two questions brought up in course of recent discussion of RFC 5884:

  *   use of Return mode values in bootstrapping BFD session echo request;
  *   inclusion of BFD Discriminator TLV in echo response to the bootstrapping echo request.

Your comments, questions are always welcome and greatly appreciated.
