+1, in addition, I am wondering whether this is something related to overlay topology model, if yes, how it is different from DC Fabric topology model defined in RFC8542?

Hmm, looking over the model, it would seem there is quite a bit of overlap with RFC8345 -- to the point I believe the model could be formulated in terms of RFC8345 specialization:

virtualization -> networks/network

device/links/interfaces/switches/vms are probably a mix of node/termmination-point/link extensions with conjunction with supporting-{topology,node,link}.

How would the draft relate to RFC8345? Should it perhaps call out it is a different take on the similar problem, specialized to a particular use-case?
