Hi, Qin:

I think this is potentially an extremely rich area for
new work, with the caveat that I think that if you say
that there aren't multi-layer OAM technologies now you're
likely to run into disagreement from the SNMP experts,
YANG experts, and so on.  I do think that you've isolated
one particularly interesting and not-very-well explored
area, which is path-coupled diagnostics and management.
I did some work in this area a long time ago
(see http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-shore-nls-tl-06)
and while it moved ahead in a proprietary context not
much was standardized.  The IETF developed a similar
mechanism (NSIS) but it's complex, has messy layers,
and is quite heavy-weight.  Still, the notion of triggering
device management actions or diagnostics along a network
path remains extremely interesting and insufficiently
investigated.  It's likely there may be some work there
but I think there needs to be some strongly-stated use
cases.
