Intended Status: Standards Track

I have been selected to do a routing directorate “early” review of this draft.

# General

The specification is on good track and its core contribution is ready. However,
there are some very few points that I suggest to fix:

## Use consistent terminology (see more in the detailed review provided below)

## Consider adding a pointer to the BGP YANG module as an example to tweak the
associated BFD timers. Likewise, consider listing last-error (YANG) data node
in addition to the MIB mention.

## The Security Considerations Section should ACK at least the dependency on
the BFD to take actions. Manipulating the BFD session will thus have
implications on the BGP connection.

## IANA Considerations: The assignment is currently temporary (as per
IANA should be requested to make that assignment permanent. I would update the
text accordingly.

## Consider moving at least RFC8538 to be listed as normative.
