Hi Hitoshi,






Agree with your opinion of the general TLV fields.


But I don't see much difference between your suggestion and the definition in draft-venaas-pim-igmp-mld-extension.


May the nested TLV and the extension length make the difference.


The router, which supports one specific extension type, should know the specific format from the extension type.


It's just my opinion. :-)






Thanks,


Sandy

Sandy,

My opinion is that the BIER extension should be also encoded into the general TLV fields.
Current definition in the bier-mld is a patchwork. It is much better to apply general extensions that is useful for other protocols as well, not for the specific protocol.
It is really worse if the specific extension prohibits other/their extensions for their future use.

Regards,

Hitoshi

This may be Ok for existing (conventional) implementations as they simply ignore the additional fields, which they don't understand/proceed. However, you should investigate and mention the situations and conditions in which conventional hosts (that don't support this I-D) and new hosts (that support this I-D) exist in a LAN. Moreover, according to rfc3376, the new hosts that support this I-D must also support rfc3376, which seems a contradiction.
