This is a well written comprehensive test set for SDN controllers. Two minor points remain from my previous review that I would draft to the attention of the responsible AD.

Major issues: None

Minor issues:

I found the large amount of text on Openflow that appears out of the blue in the appendix somewhat strange since the test suit is controller protocol agnostic. I understand that this is included by way of illustrative example. It might be useful to the reader to make a statement to this effect.

Nits/editorial comments: 

   The test traffic
   generators TP1 and TP2 SHOULD be connected to the first and the last
   leaf Network Device.

SB> I am sure I know what does first and last mean, but the meaning should be called out.
