Summary: This draft is almost ready for publication as an Informational RFC




Major issues:


Minor issues:


I think that the first sentence in section 1 is more in line with the title of the document than the abstract. Propose to change the abstract to mention Data Center.


Nits/editorial comments:


In section 1.2 ToR and EoR are given as example. Are these well known or is there a need for reference?

Section 4.1 title is Pros and Cons. My reading of the section is that is more about “general issues and challenges of the overlay” as written in section 4 above 4.1. Section 4.2 is about specific issues to consider.

In section 5 “When an NVE receives data from a TS”, this is the first time the abbreviation appears in the document maybe just change to Tennant System.
