Several important points:

1. This is work in progress and you are all allowed to comment on any of the
text. Changes made here are based on text floated on the list and comments
received, but this is NOT confirmed consensus and is still open for

2. You can see the changes this time around at
   a. Eric has retired, but is still following the work
   b. No longer need the Editor's Note in Section 1
   c. "Consumer" vs "customer". I have made this consistent (we only need to
use one
        term). I selected "Customer" because that seemed best, but I know
some people
        prefer "consumer". Please discuss if you are not happy.
   d. Changes for Isolation text and introduction of "SLE" for
"unquantifiable objectives"
        as proposed on the list, with edits for the comments received
   e. Changes for realisation of network slices as proposed on list, with
edits for the
       comments received.
   f. Various small editorials
   g. Fix ordering of end-matter sections
   h. Remove "Unused Material" Appendix (as it was unused :-)

3. Next work topics (in no particular order)
   a. Definition of a Network Slice Service (based on a discussion started
on the list by John Drake)
   b. Definition of End Points (ditto)
   c. Resolve "duplication" between Figure 1 and Figure 3 as well as
surrounding text
   d. Propose a functional architecture for realising network slices

4. I think that at least 3d will need a meeting. If 3a or 3b gets a
significant level of
    discussion on the list then it should also have a meeting. I will try to
give a week's
    notice for any meeting and pick a time that works for California and
Beijing. But,
    please note that you don't have to come to a meeting to have an opinion
- that is
    what the mailing list is for.

   This document describes network slicing in the context of networks
   built from IETF technologies.  It defines the term "IETF Network
   Slice" and establishes the general principles of network slicing in
   the IETF context.

   The document discusses the general framework for requesting and
   operating IETF Network Slices, the characteristics of an IETF Network
   Slice, the necessary system components and interfaces, and how
   abstract requests can be mapped to more specific technologies.  The
   document also discusses related considerations with monitoring and

   This document also provides definitions of related terms to enable
   consistent usage in other IETF documents that describe or use aspects
   of IETF Network Slices.
