Summary: This draft specifies an optional BGP attribute for use with Segment Routing.  It's well written and reable, although I make no claims to being an expert in this area.  The draft is ready for publication but has some nits that should be fixed (really nothing major).

Major issues:

Minor issues:

Nits/editorial comments:


Change "extendibility" to "extensibility" throughout the document.

Change "First Come, First Served" (with varying hyphenation) to simply "first-come, first-served" in a few places.  Meaning making it lower case and hyphenate consistently.


Page 3, Section 1, 1st paragraph, 2nd sentence: change the colon to a comma.

Page 3, Section 1, 3rd paragraph, 1st sentence: append comma after the close parenthesis, "label", and "Dataplane".

Page 4, Section 1, 4th paragraph, 1st sentence: delete the comma.

Page 4, Section 1, 4th paragraph, last sentence: consider making "Segment" lower case for consistency with previous usage.

Page 4, Section 2.1, 2nd indented paragraph, 2nd sentence: change "to use" to "using".

Page 7, Section 3.2, 1st paragraph, 2nd sentence: should the uses of "will be" throughout the document be changed to "MUST"?

Page 8, 2nd bullet item (Length): insert "a" before "multiple".

Page 9, Section 4, 1st sentence: delete the comma.

Page 9, Section 4.1, 3rd paragraph, 1st sentence: delete "as".

Page 10, Section 4.2, 1st paragraph, 2nd sentence: delete the first "the".

Page 12, 1st paragraph, 2nd sentence: change "Similarily" to "Similarly".
