This draft specifies a TRILL IS-IS application sub-TLV that enables the
reporting by a

   TRILL switch of sets of addresses such that all of the addresses in

   each set designate the same interface (port) and the reporting for

   such a set of the TRILL switch by which it is reachable. For example,

   a 48-bit MAC (Media Access Control) address, IPv4 address, and IPv6

   address can be reported as all corresponding to the same interface

   reachable by a particular TRILL switch. Such information could be

   used in some cases to synthesize responses to or by-pass the need for

   the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery

   (ND) protocol, or the flooding of unknown MAC addresses.


For this draft, please answer the following questions: 


1)      Is this draft ready for WG LC? 

2)      Do you think this address passing mechanism will aid deployments of
TRILL by  

resolving some addressing distribution issues,  

3)      Is there any technical issue with this solution?
