DISCUSS:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The security considerations do not seem to follow the YANG security guidelines
<https://trac.ietf.org/trac/ops/wiki/yang-security-guidelines>;. They do not
list the specific writeable and readable subtrees/nodes and why they are
sensitive. The fact that all the writeable nodes could "negatively affect
network operations" seems trivially true for most writeable YANG module nodes.
In the case of these modules, there seem to be multiple different threats
relevant to different nodes, including exposure of data about individual
users/customers, potential for disruption of the operations of the BR or CE,
etc.

I think "external party" would make more sense than "abuse party."
