Today at the MPLS WG meeting I suggested that the multiplexed marking concept that was presented in IPPM (see link below) can be applied to draft-bryant-mpls-rfc6374-sfl. Using this multiplexing approach, the number of SFLs used for measurement can potentially be reduced from 3 or 4 labels to just 2 labels. Note that the assumption in the multiplexed marking draft is that you can use a guard-band period between the start time of the loss measurement window, and the start time of the delay measurement.

Here is a link to the multiplexed marking draft:

Any feedback about the multiplexed marking draft, and about its applicability to MPLS will be welcome.
I will be happy to discuss this further.
