[Ballot comment]
As several others have noted, the major concerns below from the Gen-ART reviewer need to be addressed:

Section 4 listed three data nodes that are sensitive or vulnerable:
  -  /logical-network-elements/logical-network-element
  -  /logical-network-elements/logical-network-element/managed
  -  /if:interfaces/if:interface/bind-lne-name

All three of them deserve a bit more discussion, although the middle
one is covered in much more detail than the other two.  If a bad actor
gets "unauthorized access" is there something more specific about each
of these that can be said?  The characterization of "network
malfunctions, delivery of packets to inappropriate destinations, and
other problems" seems very broad.  Consequences that are specific to
these data nodes would be more helpful to the reader.

Russ's Gen-ART review included comments about the "vulnerable parameters" in the security considerations section in version 5. Version 6 does not seem to address those comments, nor do I see any response in email. If the authors do not intend to add the requested information, it would be good to at least say so (and hopefully explain why) via email.

Perhaps "management models" (plural)?

[Ballot comment]
No objection to the document, but a few points must addressed.

- I agree with Alvaro's point: the example should be corrected.
- This draft is NMDA compliant: it should be mentioned.

From Dan Romascanu's OPS DIR, at least the 3 first three points should be addressed (the 4rth one is a nice to have, but a bigger task IMO):

This is a very useful, well thought and well written document, which reflects
work and discussions within the RTG and OPS areas. From an operational point of
view it's a very useful tool in support of network operators that will manage
and configure logical elements. I believe that the document is almost ready,
but there are a number of issues that are worth being discussed and addressed
before approval by the IESG.

1. The name and scope of the document as presented in the title and Abstract
are not exactly reflecting the content. LNEs are not YANG LNEs as the title
says, and the type of module (a YANG module) being defined is not stated in the
Abstract. I would suggest that the document actually defines 'A Data Model and
YANG Module for Logical Network Elements'.

2. There is no reference and relationship definition in the document to the
YANG Data Model for Hardware Management defined in
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-netmod-entity-07. Actually the LNEs are
almost similar with the 'logical entities' that were dropped from the
netmod-entity work. It is expected that in the future network operators will
use both data models and the respective YANG modules when managing hardware
devices on which logical network entities are being run. Even if this
relationship is not explicitly present in the DM, I believe that it needs to be
looked at and mentioned in the document.

3. In Section 2 I see:

'The logical-network-element module augments existing
  interface management model by adding an identifier which is used on
  physical interface types to identify an associated LNE.'

I am wondering why the mentioning of 'physical interface types' here. What if
the interface type in not 'physical' representing a protocol layer or sublayer
on the device? After all, if all interfaces to be considered were 'physical' we
could have augmented the entity hardware module rather than the interfaces
module, as all physical interfaces are represented there as well.

4. Sections 3.2 and 3.3 seem to be written for the benefit and the perspective
of the implementations writers rather than of the operators. Are there any
hints, advice, or indications for the operators using the module to manage
their LNEs? These could be described also in the examples appendices, which are
otherwise very useful to illustrate and explain the models.

(Via drafts-lastcall@iana.org): IESG/Authors/WG Chairs:

The IANA Services Operator has completed its review of draft-ietf-rtgwg-lne-model-05. If any part of this review is inaccurate, please let us know.

The IANA Services Operator has a question about one of the actions requested in the IANA Considerations section of this document.

The IANA Services Operator understands that, upon approval of this document, there are two actions which we must complete.

First, in the ns registry on the IETF XML Registry page located at:

https://www.iana.org/assignments/xml-registry/

a single, new namespace will be registered as follows:

ID: yang:ietf-logical-network-element
URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-logical-network-element
Filename: [ TBD-at-Registration ]
Reference: [ RFC-to-be ]

As this document requests registrations in an Expert Review or Specification Required (see RFC 8126) registry, we will initiate the required Expert Review via a separate request. If there is no expert designated for the registry, we will work with the IESG to have one assigned. Expert review will need to be completed before your document can be approved for publication as an RFC.

Second, in the YANG Module Names registry on the YANG Parameters registry page located at:

https://www.iana.org/assignments/yang-parameters/

a single, new YANG module will be registered as follows:

Name: ietf-logical-network-element
File: [ TBD-at-Registration ]
Maintained by IANA?
Namespace: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-logical-network-element
Prefix: lne
Module:
Reference: [ RFC-to-be ]

IANA Question --> What should be the entry for the registry value "Maintained by IANA?" for this new YANG module?

While the YANG module name will be registered after the IESG approves the document, the YANG module file will be posted after the RFC Editor notifies us that the document has been published.

The IANA Services Operator understands that these are the only actions required to be completed upon approval of this document.

Note:  The actions requested in this document will not be completed until the document has been approved for publication as an RFC. This message is only to confirm the list of actions that will be performed.


Thank you,

Subject: Last Call:  (YANG Logical Network Elements) to Proposed Standard


The IESG has received a request from the Routing Area Working Group WG
(rtgwg) to consider the following document: - 'YANG Logical Network Elements'
  as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2018-01-31. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of
the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract


  This document defines a logical network element module.  This module
  can be used to manage the logical resource partitioning that may be
  present on a network device.  Examples of common industry terms for
  logical resource partitioning are Logical Systems or Logical Routers.




The file can be obtained via
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-rtgwg-lne-model/

IESG discussion can be tracked via
