Hi Reshad,
thank you for your expedient response to the proposed update. I'll
mark the draft as potentially updating RFCs 5880 and 7880. I'm glad
that you consider acceptable almost all proposed changes. I think that
the one open questions is:
    - 3.4. 3rd paragraph : add reference to section 5.3? Also do we need a
    state variable which controls this behaviour (discovering tails)?
    GIM>> In the reverse order.
    Then the variable be per tail? What if number of tails is unknown to
    the head? I'd rather not define that in the base specification.
<RR> No, the variable would be on the head for all tails.
Let me try to construct already defined variables:
- section New State Variable Value has defined MultipointClient as the
new state of bfd.SessionType:
MultipointClient:  A session on the head that tracks the state of an
individual tail, when desirable.
That is how MultipointClient use explained in section Multipoint
Client Session. I think that the text in the remainder of the
Controlling Multipoint BFD Options does provide reasonable explanation
of use of MultipointClient state. What do you think?

Regards,
Greg
