I support the adoption but I propose two conceptual changes:

1. Introduce a new module name and namespace so that it is not necessary to
carry along the deprecated baggage. If readability is the primary concern, this
is IMO the way to go. Instead of "ietf-ip-2", I'd suggest something like "ietf-

2. Avoid obsoleting RFC 7277. I believe the old modules may continue to be used
in areas where NMDA is an overkill, such as open source home routers. NMDA
implementors should be aware of the new modules but there is no need to
eradicate the old data models.

#2 applies also to other modules for which the NMDA version is underway.


PS. The subject is wrong, it shoud be -rfc7277bis-
