I think having a framework document as an RG document is most helpful.

One area that this framework document seems to oscillate around is the relationship or complexity metrics to the overall definition of complexity. First, the Abstract seems to imply the need for a metric on network complexity as a whole, to be able to define complexity. Second, the problem space attempts to use some proxies for complexity metrics approximation or correlation. But then, Section 4.1 "Definitions and Metrics" and Section 4.2, "Comparative Analysis", seem to shy away a bit from metrics that can be applied to a network.
