Hi Loa, Lou,

I'm unsure about many drafts that are (still) listed, and that to me, do not address scaling in particular. Among them:
- draft-ietf-l3vpn-end-system-02
- draft-xu-l3vpn-virtual-subnet
- draft-sd-l2vpn-evpn-overlay
- draft-rabadan-l2vpn-evpn-prefix-advertisement
If these drafts are really believed to relate to scaling in some specific way, then I believe that how they do would deserve to be made explicit.

Also factoring-out in one item the set of drafts around the big label proposal would increase readability.

Second, in the possible concerns listed on slide 3:
- scaling wrt. the number of VRFs/VSIs/EVIs on a said PE is probably another relevant metric
- talking about "size of a VPN" sounds vague : maybe talk more specifically about "number of sites, CEs, VRFs, prefixes, MACs, multicast states -- per VPN" would be better



Loa Andersson :

Lou and I have been editing the slides a bit. Please review and comment.

Next step will be to start working on the problem statement and we will
need help with that. If you are interested please get in contact with
