The yang-data discussion is regards a different module (ietf-zerotouch-information), I
only mentioned it before by way of saying that there is yet something else unresolved...

Any of the above options are equally quick IMO.

I am not surprised.  I ran into similar headwinds before.

Indeed, and so I'll take it that this is more support for the plan

Issue #1 above is independent of this issue.  We could choose (e) above but still be
