I am balloting No objection on the basis of a very light review. I trust the responsible AD to have ensured adequate review.

Here are some nits:


You say:

   Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) [OAM]

But the cited document uses:

   Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM)

See also your Abstract.


While you have correctly noted that Y.1731 is now G.8013/Y.1731, you 
should update your reference to the most recent edition.

              ITU, "ITU-T Recommendation G.8013/Y.1731: OAM functions and
              mechanisms for Ethernet based networks", ITU-T
              Recommendation G.8013/Y.1731, 2013.


Section 1

   These protocols generally conform to
   the performance monitoring functionality defined in ITU-T
   G.8013/Y.1731 [Y.1731].

"generally conform" is an odd term. Things either conform or they don't.
So I interpret that some of the protocols conform and some don't, with 
the balance being that most of the protocols conform. That means a few
don't and it would be good call out the specifics.

My ABSTAIN here is because Donald Eastlake is both chair of the WG and editor of many of its documents.  This undermines the consensus process in TRILL to the degree that I cannot support the publication of documents on which he is editor.
