Hi,

Thanks for this document.

Like Ben's comment, I was wondering why the document doesn't give a stronger
recommendation as to which of the two approaches to follow.  It looks like all
the implementations that the document lists already take the per-association
approach, and that approach seems to be sufficient.   Hence, would it not be
simpler to make that the RECOMMENDED approach, and then say that
implementations MAY do per request randomization, but need to be aware that
individual requests are more likely to take different paths with different
latencies?

Thanks,
Rob
