Summary: Ready for publication as an Informational RFC but with nits 

that should be considered before publication

Nits/editorial comments:

There are 6 authors listed - please double-check the guidance in section 

4.1.1 of RFC7322.

If retaining all the authors still makes sense, please help Adrian by 

providing an argument

that he can pass to the RFC Editor.

The shepherd writeup indicates a solution ID is ready. I didn't check to 

see how the requirements

listed here were reflected there. Would it make sense to provide a 

reference? (While I see no harm

in publishing the document, it's not clear how doing so will be helpful 

if the requirements were

uncontentious as the writeup implies. There are few enough of them that 

adding a short list in

the mechanism document might be more effective.)

Items 2 and 3 in section 3.4 are confusing as currently written. 2 seems 

to be talking

about the case that the current path is still optimal. Is 3 trying to 

talk about the case

where there is no path, not even the current path, that will work? If so 

the "(i.e., other

than the current path)" in 3 doesn't make sense.

Should you have captured a requirement that any mechanism implementing these

requirements be extensible to allow for cases like polarization based 


when they eventually come along?

Please consider reordering the sentences in section 3.5 - the last 

sentence seems

to be talking about the first paragraph?

You say "mechanisms defined in this document" several times in section 

4, but this

document defines no mechanisms.
