If you do a factory reset, does that also mean that the device should be rebooted at the same time to get it into a consistent state?

Or should clients have the opportunity to update the config after the reset and before it has been rebooted?

Or is it not necessary to reboot the device at all?

Please voice your support or objections before April 8.

I have significant concerns about this draft and work item.
The intentions are good and the scope is well-defined.
The problem is that this is a very proprietary implementation detail.

I have already raised the issue that our server cannot factory reset a single datastore.
It can only do that for the whole server (which will setup the datastores
in an implementation manner and order). So another RPC is needed, and if-features..

I have seen some comments on this issue: "This is great but our server
does not work that way, so we need X,Y,Z"  (Just like I am doing ;-)
How will the WG keep that from happening 10 or 30 times?

I support this work if the WG can figure out how to keep it simple.
(Meaning I support adoption of the work but not going to wait 2+ years for it)
