[TS]: seems reasonable, we will discuss this among the authors for a
suitable extension.

[TS]: the new SO, is recording local information that if intercepted by
another LSR (PLR or MP that understands it) can use it for further summary
FRR processing. This resembles to an extent what other RRO SOs do today
(e.g. node-id and label Sos) for regular FRR.

[TS]: yes, the comment (about RRO policies) is rightfully correct. .. but
also applicable to existing RRO/SO(s) (e.g. node-id and/or label SO)
needed for proper FRR too. That said, will discuss extension of an
existing (FRR) object amongst the authors for (dis)advantages.
