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.

Major Issues:

Minor Issues:

  At the end of the first paragraph of section 4, could we add a sentence
  saying "the BGP-LS attributes appear within the corresponding new BGP NLRI"
  or similar?  While that is explained later in section 4, the length of the
  section means that a new reader is left wondering for quite some time.

 Section 4.1 has the paragraph:
   All TLVs within the NLRI that are not specified as mandatory are
   considered optional.  All TLVs within the BGP-LS Attribute are
   considered optional unless specified otherwise.
  As far as I can tell, those two sentences are saying, about two different
  aspects of the encoding, the same thing.  But they say it in different ways. 
  If there is some subtle difference in meaning taht is intended, please
  clarify.  If the meaning is indeed the same, could we use parallel
  construction to avoid readers thinking there is a difference?
