1.  Introduction

   Deterministic Networking (DetNet) is a service that can be offered by
   a network to DetNet flows.  DetNet provides these flows extremely low
   packet loss rates and assured bounded end-to-end delivery latency.
   General background and concepts of DetNet can be found in the DetNet
   Architecture [RFC8655].

   Segment Routing(SR) leverages the source routing paradigm. An ingress
   node steers a packet through an ordered list of instructions, called
   "segments".  SR can be applied over IPv6 data plane using Routing
   Extension Header [RFC8754]. A segment in Segment Routing is not 
   limited to a routing/forwarding function.  A SRv6 Segment can 
   indicate functions that are executed locally in the node where they 
   are defined. [I-D.ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming] describes 
   some well-known functions and segments associated to them. SRH TLVs
   ([RFC8754]) also provides meta-data for segment processing.  All 
   these features make SRv6 suitable to carry DetNet flows, by defining
