Hi Martin, Stefano,

>It seems to me this could easily become an endless discussion again. People seem to have very different views on it. Thus I'm not sure whether it would be suitable for this document.

Sorry, that was not at all my intention to get into an endless discussion.
Being an SR MPLS data plane document, I felt discussion or reference to SID depth related aspects would be important. This is one of the aspects we contended with, when SR is being discussed in MBH deployments in my previous organization.

> The manageability section of the architecture draft mention that a node may want to signal its stack capabilities and we have igp extensions for that.

I am fine with referencing both or a summary as pointed by Stewart below at some appropriate place in the document.

Stefano,

This is the document that someone interested in SR from and an MPLS perspective may well start with. A discussion on the issue of label stack depth and the practical constrains is thus very much in scope. The fact that you had a debate in the past immediately points to the need for a summary of the key issues and conclusions in this document.

Stewart
