Thanks Adrian for raising this point.

My take is that we can’t discard it by design. Take the example of stitched slices where packets are marked by the CE + that marking is trusted by the PE to graft them to the appropriate network slice. Likewise, a hierarchical design where an aggregate slice trusts the marking of the upper slice to identify how to map between the levels. Such trust may be justified under specific deployment contexts.

... but we have to ask ourselves carefully whether we *really* want the CE-based approach in our network slicing:
-          What are the considerations for how much knowledge of the underlay network has to be shared to the CE?
-          What are the considerations for how an underlay distinguishes CE-originated slicing traffic?
These are pretty much the same questions that CE-based VPNs have to answer. Of course, the concept of a “provider-managed CE” muddies these waters somewhat.

Conversely, the port-based PE-based VPN has none of these problems, but does have to agree on the “Access Connection” encoding, and that is either payload-sensitive (like in PWE3) or technology-aware (like in L3VPN).
