Shepherd writeup

ISE write-up for: draft-nachum-sarp-09

  "This document introduces SARP, an architecture that uses proxy
   gateways to scale large data center networks. SARP is based on
   fast proxies that significantly reduce switches' FDB table
   (MAC table) sizes and ARP/ND impact on network elements in an
   environment where hosts within one subnet (or VLAN) can spread
   over various locations. SARP is targeted for massive data
   centers with a significant number of VMs that can move across
   various physical locations."

This draft was reviewed for me by Eric Gray (IEEE 802).  Eric
sent a detailed review (which the authors have worked through to
improve their draftt), and commented "we wont know if it works 
without an experiment."

This draft has no IANA Considerations.  It is an Experimental document,
I intend to add an ISE note saying "the experiment will finish on
1 March 2017."
