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

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments:

I found several acronyms that did not have expansions.  I recommend a pass over
the document for unexpanded acronyms..

Section 2: What is "broadcast/unknown" traffic (spec. "unknown"?); please
expand the acronym "BUM".
  The paragraph that begins with "One NVO3 network [...]" is indented
  differently from the rest of the text.  Intentional or a typo?

Section 3.2: An illustrating figure for the use case described in this section
would be helpful.
  Expand acronyms "PE" and "ABSR".
  I found the text using "Option A" and "Option B" confusing.  Exactly what are
  those options?

Section 5: I didn't understand the references to IaaS, PaaS and SaaS in the
summary - there are no references to those services in the body of the
document, or back pointers from the summary to relevant preceding text.
