> [Bo]: I think this comment relates with the thread discussion of SFC

[Med] Not only. This is important as we are modelling a slice not any connectivity service. We need to make sure slice specifics are covered and that the structure can evolve to cover all future slice components.  

If there are no slice specifics, we just need to cast the module as a general connectivity service module. Slicing will be one use case.

[Med] That would be a first approach, but what is important is have a provision for this in the module. A kind if information model can be seen at rfc7297.html#section-4.

One aside note: I don't think we need to overload our design with SLO/SLEs subtleties. We just need to call these service requirements or something similar. I'm still waiting for a follow-up from Adrian on this as this point is related to the framework draft.

[Med] MTU is related to the conformance traffic. It should be included because a slice may be tweak for specific data lengths.

Some shaping/policing may be agreed for the conforming traffic, however the slice request can include the agreed behavior for out-of-profile. Such traffic can be redirected to another slice, discarded, etc.

[Med] BGP or static routing are good example of activation means. Other attachment circuit specific technologies can be included.

[Med] Invocation means are distinct from the activation: You may have a multicast slice that is in place, but in order to access some specific channels or (S,G), the CE will need to send specific queries within the slice itself (MLD, for example).

[Med] What I had in mind is more notifications to the slice customer.

[Med] The types in the common I-D are more generic than the te-types as they can be applied for service requests :-) You may at least cite it in the text and explain that you prefer to copy some data nodes rather than importing them. That would be fair.

[Med] I actually have an issue with "IETF network" :-)
