Comment (2004-02-04 for -)
I found the initial definition of starting vs. restarting to be a bit opaque:
The terms "start/starting" are used to refer to a router in which
the control function has either been started for the first time or
has been restarted but the forwarding functions have not been
maintained in a prior state.
The terms "(re)start/(re)starting" are used when the text is
applicable to both a "starting" and a "restarting" router.
I think replacing the words started and restarted above where they
are not in quotations marks would help. Though there is no functional
difference for this spec between "started for the first time" and "restarted
without maintaing forwarding state", having different words for them
(rather than "starting") would also help. This may, however, be my
idiosyncratic reaction, so don't bother with a change unless others agree.
In order to avoid causing unnecessary routing churn in other
routers, it is highly desirable that the own LSPs generated by the
"that the own LSPs" looks wrong to me--should own be dropped?
