A couple of comments:

- As a co-author or YANG Module Tags, I'm thrilled to see it being 
used/augmented by this document, but I'm not clear on how the metric and 
operation type tags are to be used.  To me these seem to be best defined 
by the modules themselves, e.g., does a value represent an average 
/sum/min/max value or the scale of the value, and not as tag meta 
data.   Similarly, the type of vpn supported by a tunnel also seems like 
module data and not tag meta data, as this is a per tunnel instance value.

While the work was previously presented to the WG, I know you didn't 
have the time we all hoped for to discuss this at the last session, so I 
(personally, not as chair) would like to ask you to explain this on the 
list prior to adoption.  I'm hoping I'm just missing something, but from 
the discussion with Juergen an Andy I suspect not.

- Since this work is derived from work that I contributed to, I'd be 
interested in hearing what new mechanism(s) is/are covered by the IPR 
disclosure prior to supporting WG adoption.  I'm not asking in order to 
debate this, as that is something for other venues, I'm merely asking 
that you state for the record what new mechanism is covered.

Thank you
