This document introduces capabilities that allow YANG datastores to reference and incorporate information from remote datastores. This is accomplished by extending YANG with the ability to define mount points that act as references to data nodes in remote datastores, and by providing the necessary means to manage and administer those mount points. This facilitates the development of applications that need to access data that transcends individual network devices while improving network-wide object consistency. This document also lays the groundwork for optional extensions to support subscriptions to remote object updates and transparent caching of objects. These options will speed application peformance without sacrificing data consistency.
