Two minor questions on this draft.

(1) In the definition of the structure and augment-structure extensions, should the draft explicitly state what the canonical statement ordering is?  Although TBH, the ordering is pretty intuitive.

(2) Probably beyond the scope of this draft, but does there need to be any thought about how SIDs (draft-ietf-core-sid-05) are allocated to YANG data extensions?

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Network Modeling WG of the IETF.

        Title           : YANG Data Structure Extensions
        Authors         : Andy Bierman
                          Martin Bjorklund

	Date            : 2019-03-07

   This document describes YANG mechanisms for defining abstract data
   structures with YANG.  It is intended to replace and extend the
   "yang-data" extension statement defined in RFC 8040.
