Early Review of draft-lamparter-rtgwg-dst-src-routing-01
I have been selected as the Routing Directorate reviewer for this draft.
The Routing Directorate seeks to review all routing or routing-related
drafts as they pass through WG adoption, IETF last call, and IESG review,
sometimes on special request. The purpose of the review is to provide
assistance to the Routing ADs. For more information about the Routing
Directorate, please see
Although these comments are primarily for the use of the Routing ADs, it
would be helpful if you could consider them along with any other IETF
Last Call comments that you receive, and strive to resolve them through
discussion or by updating the draft.
Since this is an initial QA review, I intend to focus on the main area
that require discussion in the WG.

The reason being that BCP 38 is normally not a factor for use cases
complex recursive resolution is required. However, this is a topic
Section 3.2: Again, I believe one option needs to be selected for uRPF
filtering. I believe it should be pointed out that both the
and destination are reversed in the uRPF lookup.
Section 3.3: I don’t see why multicast is not applicable since there are
multicast routes (where the source is always /128).
Section 4: Rather than expressing the constraints in terms of
should be expressed in terms of route installation and more
should be placed on the routing protocol.
Nits: I have some suggested editorial changes to the draft that I will
