This document updates NMDA to define a read-only conventional configuration datastore called "system" to hold system-defined configurations. To avoid clients' explicit copy/paste of referenced system-defined configuration into the target configuration datastore (e.g., <running>), a "resolve-system" parameter has been defined to allow the server acting as a "system client" to copy referenced system-defined nodes automatically. The solution enables clients manipulating the target configuration datastore (e.g., <running>) to overlay and reference nodes defined in <system>, override values of configurations defined in <system>, and configure descendant nodes of system-defined nodes.
