This is a good document. I just have one clarification/comment:
in the draft:
"7) Support the following tunneling technologies: GRE, MPLS, IPSEC,
GMPLS, IP-in-IP, L2TP. Be easily extensible to support new tunnel
and req. 8 on heterogeneous tunnels.
I assume the tracing doesn't preclude the case where the IP
tunnels are carrying MPLS-in-IP or MPLS-in-GRE encapsulation.
Should that be explicitly mentioned (since it has implication
on the type)?.
