Hi Juergen,

Thank you for the response.

I am not aware of any other use cases that leverage (Internal host) loopback address. I will wait for the WG to decide if it can be included as part of inet-types. If not, we will stick with the typedef defined in draft-nainar-mpls-lsp-ping-yang.

Thanks,
Nagendra

    Thanks for pointing to the definitions in draft-nainar-mpls-lsp-ping-yang.
    With that, your request is relatively clear now and the question the WG
    needs to answer is whether these types are common enough to warrant being
    part of inet-types, i.e., are there any other places where these types
    may be useful?

The YANG module for LSP Ping (RFC8029) defined in draft-nainar-mpls-lsp-ping-yang is using this address and so we felt it will be good to have the same included in the right document.

    >         Go back to the early specifications of IPv4 routers and routing protocols, which are still the ones we use today, and loopback was a state into which an interface could be put, with a loop back in hardware or software, often used for testing.  A router had a router id, a 32 bit number with no syntax.  One major manufacturer conflated parts of this and created a virtual address  or addresses which could be used to send and receive packets for the router, as opposed to an interface on the router, which had no physical manifestation; fine until they called it the loopback address(es) which, sadly, caught on and many people, included those writing IETF I-D think that the router id can only be such a routable address.  Some even think that there can only be one such address on a box, as opposed to one for network management, one for the control plane and so on.  Not so.
