Dear Richard,

We agree that there is no need to argue. The MPR-OSPF is a consistent
extension of OSPFv3 that uses flooding reduction, topology reduction and
adjacency reduction based on MPR, with a stable specification ready for
experimental status.

You suggest that you could introduce some changes in MDR, taking
advantage of the experimental status. We do not think that it is needed
to introduce the major changes you mentionned (such as including MPR
topology reduction or multicast) since they are already featured in the
MPR-OSPF extension. However, if you think MDR needs major changes, then
MDR is not ready for experimental status.
