haven’t had a chance to review the PR in detail yet, should do so today.

On document status, my understanding is:

- in London, we decided to adopt the spin bit as an experimental feature within the working group to generate more experience to inform an eventual adoption decision.

- in Bangkok, we achieved rough consensus to adopt the feature into the base protocol. The plan as I understood it is that documents were to be held separate until the spin-exp document reflected Bangkok consensus and the transport document was done with large-scale technical changes, after which they would be merged. This plan together the discussion about 2119 language made it clear to me that the spin bit would be proposed standard.

This PR does the merge, because the conditions (less transport change in the future, spin bit now reflects the consensus about probabilistic participation) have been met.

While general guidelines on on-path use of the signal belongs in the (informational) manageability draft, details about how exactly to generate metrics from this signal are IMO more experimental, and probably fit better over in IPPM (personal opinion, not a ruling from the chair)
