Hi all,

I support adoption of this draft, but I have a certain number of
questions for the authors:

 - As far as I know, routers manage their MPLS label allocation by interface,
   except for Segment Routing which uses an SRGB. In the draft, you mention
   that the BSID, associated with a given LSP, could be taken from the SRGB or
   from a local block. Does this imply that the BSID value must be available for
   all interfaces? (i.e. all packets arriving on any interface with the BSID will
   be forwarded in the LSP) or does the BSID only depend on the source IP address
   of the LSP? But, in the latter case, if this source IP address corresponds to
   a loopback interface (the most frequent case), the BSID becomes de facto
   global. So, if the BSID does not have a global meaning, should the
   TE-Path-Binding TLV contain a reference (e.g. the IP address) to the interface
   to which this BSID is associated?

 - In the draft, you mention that there could be several TE-PATH-BINDING TLVs in
   the LSP object (I assume one TE-Path-Binding per BSID). In case a PCE requests
   multiple BSIDs from a PCC via a PCupd or PCInitiate message for a given LSP,
   should the PCE insert as many empty TE-PATH-BINDING TLVs as requested BSIDs?
   Similarly, if the PCE wishes to add an additional BSID, should it insert the
   TE-PATH-BINDING TLVs corresponding to the previously allocated BSIDs plus an
   empty TE-PATH-BINDING TLV for the new BSID?

 - Once the BSID is allocated, is it advertised (flooded) in the IGP for use by
   other routers in the network or does it remain under the control of the PCE?
   As there may be use cases for both scenarios, should a new flag be added to
   indicate whether the BSID is to be advertised or not in the IGP?

 - In the case of hierarchical paths, how could we use BSID? For example: we would
   route 2 LSPs 1 & 2 through a hierarchical tunnel H-LSP by associating BSID1
   and BSID2 to H-LSP in order to use it respectively for LSP1 and LSP2 like this:

   A->B->C (incoming LSP1) --\                                    /-- Z->U (continuation of LSP1)
                              --> C->Y->Z (hierarchical H-LSP) -->
   D->E->C (incoming LSP2) --/                                    \-- Z->W (continuation of LSP2)

   In this example, how Z can determine which packets from LSP1 should continue to
   U and which packets from LSP2 should continue to W? A solution would be to keep
   the BSID1, respectively BSID2, for each packets belonging to LSP1 respectively
   LSP2 to help Z determine the next hop. So, for this purpose,would it be
   possible to add a flag to indicate that the BSID must be preserved, so that
   packets can pass through a hierarchical tunnel transparently?

Regards

Olivier
