Hi Pablo,
thank you for sharing your opinion. I understand that you believe that
draft-ietf-6man-spring-srv6-oam will not change and will be published with
defining the O-flag as
      O-flag: OAM flag.  When set, it indicates that this packet is an
      operations and management (OAM) packet.
I, on the other hand, am much less certain that that draft and SRv6 OAM, in
general, require the special flag in SRH. I believe that progressing
the draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming with the current text and
the informative reference increases the likelihood that an Errata must be
filed one the SRv6 OAM draft is published.
And as we're discussing a sub-section in the Operation section, I've got
few questions on counters, hope you don't mind:

   - As this is part of the operational considerations, should there be any
   recommendation on the length of the counters?
   - Also, the usual drawback of detailed statistics to characterize a flow
   is scaling. Any consideration and recommendation on that?
   - And last. I didn't find any of these counters being discussed
   in draft-ietf-6man-spring-srv6-oam. Perhaps you can help me with a
   reference to the SRv6 document that uses them.

Regards,
Greg
