I am assuming these functional elements often found in various broadband networks are out of scope: NAT, DNS, AAA, Address Assignment, Load balancer, Multi-homing? What of Security enforcement such as (but not limited) to IP firewall? 
So if the intention is to leave contents as shown (ok with me) perhaps the title and abstract could be clearer?
Is "IP Transport Design" a common term for the subject matter, or perhaps "IP Router Design"?

As you can see, Victor and I have just submitted an update to the Design Choices draft.

This is a significant update, with completely re-written text around IGP choice and BGP. The IGP choice section looks more completely at the various options, while the BGP section now considers iBGP as well as eBGP. This update also addresses comments sent to us by Owen DeLong  (thanks, Owen, and sorry that we took so long to address them!).

In terms of draft status, we are thinking that we are getting close to a final version. There are surely problems with the draft that need correcting, but we don't have any plans to add significant new content. So please read this version with that in mind.

Thanks in advance for any comments, and sorry that we have been a bit slow in updating the draft.
