I have been selected as the Routing Directorate reviewer for this draft. The
Routing Directorate seeks to review all routing or routing-related drafts as
they pass through IETF last call and IESG review, and sometimes on special
request. The purpose of the review is to provide assistance to the Routing ADs.
For more information about the Routing Directorate, please see


Although these comments are primarily for the use of the Routing ADs, it would
be helpful if you could consider them along with any other IETF Last Call
comments that you receive, and strive to resolve them through discussion or by
updating the draft.

Reviewer: Susan Hares

Date: 5/25/2016

IETF End Date: unknown

Intended Status: Standards track

Summary: This document is basically ready for publication, but has nits that
should be considered before publication.



Document contains good technical content for extending the Forces work into an
Inter-FE LFB.   The document is easily read, but a few nits would improve its


My hand check of the inter-FE LFB XML model indicated all XML is fine.  If an
automated check of the XML with the Forces LFBs, it would be useful to run this


The improvement in the congestion consideration section (5.1.3) between -03 and
-04 was necessary.

Major issues: none
