Reviewer: Jürgen Schönwälder
Review result: Has Nits

I have only a limited understanding of VXLAN and BFD technology.
Hence, some of my question may look odd to the insiders.

- Never	heard of this IPv6 loopback address space before. Is it	OK to
  allocate and use it this way?

- Why is echo BFD outside the scope of this document? Can I just turn
  on echo mode or will extra specifications be needed?

- Nits:


    Ability to monitor path continuity


    The ability to monitor path continuity


    BFD packet MUST be encapsulated
