FWIW, I do not - in specific, I support the notion of per-service
overlays, but would not call them "slices".

Slices are an artifact of an OS-view of the network. It's a network
partitioning model that considers cross-overlay interaction only as a
violation of the model itself.

We should be careful to consider that networks end at network interfaces
and network interface names, not OS partitions - and OS partitions are
the baggage that comes with the term "slice".
