Hi,

We were wondering if it would make sense to introduce features in the IANA if types YANG model to enable grouping of related interface types.  This would allow implementations to include only the types it really requires (by supporting the related features but not the others) and (in case of a CLI interface) would reduce the possible completions if an operator would ask for the possible values of the type of an interface.
Has this ever been considered/discussed?

Best regards,
Bart
