Thanks Anoop this helps. I guess in that case we may not restrict it to
VTEP MAC only and leave it to implementation but we might need to add text
for interop in cases if someone uses fixed mac like this for valid
non-managment VNI then how it should be handled?

We can wait for others also to comment on this before we can make these
changes to draft.


Thanks
