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

(1) I’m surprised that there’s not even a passing reference to
draft-ietf-spring-oam-usecase, given that it points to this draft in several
places, among other things as “adding functionality to the use cases described
by this document”.  I'm not advocating for a web of references, just surprised.

(2) The definition of a field with the name “Protocol” in Section 5. (Segment
ID sub-TLV) got me a little confused when I went looking for a registry and
found the values corresponding to the Downstream Detailed Mapping TLV (Section
6).  The name is ok, but I was wondering:  Can you reuse the existing registry
for the values used on the Segment ID sub-TLV?  If so, then the values for
OSPF/ISIS would change.  If not, then please have IANA set one up.

(3) What happens if there’s any error (invalid length, unknown protocol, etc.)
in the sub-TLVs defined in Section 5?  I’m assuming that the action is specific
to the TLV that contains them, or that there is something already specified in
rfc8029 — please include a pointer, or specifics if needed.  I see that Section
7.4. (Segment ID Check) says that other values (for Protocol) “MUST be treated
as Protocol value of 0” — that’s ok for now, but when/if other values are used
this document would have to be Updated.  It may be better to say “any other
unassigned value” (or maybe unrecognized, or something along those lines).

(4) I would really like to see a registry definition for Adj. Type (in 5.3).
