Hi Alia,

Thanks for this review! Please see inline.

During this period, it is critical that the authors be extremely responsive and update the draft as appropriate so that the process runs as smoothly and quickly as feasible

Great point. Working copy updated. I also re-read RFC 7770 and I do not think there’s any additional considerations or implications.

>    2) In Sec 2.1, it specifies "Routers that do not recognize the S-BFD Discriminator TLV Type MUST ignore the TLV."  I don't think that this document can mandate what routers that don't implement it do.  I went back through RFC 7770 and don't see any description *sigh* for the expected router behavior if a sub-TLV isn't recognized.  This might be a very useful errata to add to RFC 7770 - unless someone else can find where the behavior is specified.  For this draft, please think about what "ignoring the TLV" means and what routers that do not know about this draft are likely to do - and then update this sentence.

True, this doc cannot say “MUST ignore”. However, RFC 7770 S2.3 already says “Unrecognized types are ignored.”

I will change
"Routers that do not recognize the S-BFD Discriminator TLV Type MUST ignore the TLV.”
"Routers that do not recognize the S-BFD Discriminator TLV Type will ignore the TLV [RFC 7770], and therefore will not learn S-BFD Discriminators via OSPF.”

Changes made in our working copy, and can submit when signaled.

Feedback most welcome.


— Carlos.
