Document Quality

  OpenDaylight, Juniper, and the IETF hackathon have created existing 
  pre-standard work.   This draft documents the requirements around the 
  ephemeral state concept that is core to the functionality of I2RS.  
  These requirements have been discussed at netmod, netconf, and i2rs 
  working group meetings.
