COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Since this document implies the creation of centralized databases of
addressing information, I think it would help to call out in Section 6
the need to secure the directory contents themselves, not just against
abuses of the push or pull services but in general against unauthorized
access.

Also, I recall in prior evaluations of TRILL documents some discussion
about how TRILL deals with ephemeral MAC addresses and my recollection is
that they are likely prohibited by policy on TRILL networks. But if there
is some interaction between ephemeral MAC addresses and the services
described in this document that would be good for implementors to be
aware of, those are probably worth mentioning.
