1.  Introduction

   Today a network offers to its clients far more services than just
   connectivity across the network.  Large variety of physical, logical
   and/or virtual service functions, network functions and transport
   functions (collectively named in this document as SFs) could be
   allocated for and assigned to a client.  As described in
   [I-D.bryskin-teas-use-cases-sf-aware-topo-model], there are some
   important use cases, in which the network needs to represent to the
   client SFs at the client's disposal as topological elements in
   relation to other elements of a topology (i.e. nodes, links, link and
   tunnel termination points) used by the network to describe itself to
   the client.  Not only would such information allow for the client to
   auto-discover the network's SFs available for the services
   provisioned for the client, it would also allow for the client
   selecting the SFs, duel-optimizing the selection on the SF location
   on the network and connectivity means (e.g.  TE tunnels) to inter-
   connect the SFs.  Consequently thus would give to both the network
   and the client powerful means for the service function chain (SFC
   [RFC7498] [RFC7665]) negotiation to achieve most efficient and cost
   effective (from the network point of view) and most optimal yet
   satisfying all necessary constraints of SFCs(from the client's point
   of view).
