Comment (2008-04-24 for -)
I am concerned of a number of things with this document. The main issue is that it introduces a level of generality that I'm not sure is called for and brings along with significant complexity. Policy can be applied and fetched from either clients or servers. Policy can apply to actual PC decisions, but also to selection of PCEs. The components necessary to implement this architecture are going to be numerous. Does the industry really need all this, or was the inclusion of all of these options part of some compromise? Also, I was earlier under the impression that COPS is dead, and as a result it might not be such a good idea to build on it. Maybe that is not the case?
