Reading the generic document, I now have a doubt: shouldn't mentions
to OSPF and IS-IS in the 1-hop draft go in a separate "IGP application
document" or "OSPF / ISIS application document"? Most of the content
is not related to the 1hop functionality but rather with BFD-protocol
interactions, including Graceful restart.

Or perhaps, as another example in the generic draft?

For example, the Graceful restart mentioned in the 1hop draft, is
probably applicable to all protocols that have Graceful restart (as
BGP), not only to IGPs.

I know it is a non negligible amount of editorial work, but will
probably lay out a clear structure for the BFD standards... that, with
the count already up to more than four drafts for BFD, may be a good
thing. (or not, it probably depends).
