Subject: [OSPF] Poll for WG adoption of draft-xu-ospf-routable-ip-address

This is a simple document with a few strong drivers (ELC and S-BFD) requiring it..

Please share your support or objections in making it a WG document.

[speaking as WG member]

Two comments..

1. Section 3 has this text - "This TLV is only applicable to OSPFv2.".
    I believe, this should also be applicable to RFC5838, i.e. for IPv4 AF's

2. Section 3 and 4 describes the scope as SHOULD be domain-wide. I personally don't see any real use cause of any lessor scope (Area or Link) since we have mechanisms to generate routable IP address for those scopes already. So I would suggest we limit the scope of this document to be "MUST be domain-wide". Any concerns with that?
