Re: [RRG] Precision of the goals?
I'm wondering how much precision there should be in the goals.
Just to take the first one as an example:
Thus, the first required goal is to provide significant
to the scalability of the routing plane.
Should we be looking for a way to measure that goal? For example,
by having a goal that the RIB size goes like log(N) for some
Obviously that is simplistic - my point is to ask whether we
want to define metrics.
If the goals are only qualitative, it will be hard to judge
Well, my take on it is that we will have a hard time being
quantitative about all of the goals. How do we quantify
'deployability', for example? And if we can't quantify all of the
goals, is there really a benefit in quantifying some of them?
This is exactly why the second paragraph of the introduction is a
request to use 'good judgement'.
There are also other considerations, such as folks "designing to the
test" and gaming the system by rigging the goals that we should
BTW another point occurred to me when reading the Asbtract

If we want the broader community to take any notice of the promised
it seems necessary to get some measure of buy-in from the broader
for the goals, once they have taken shape.
Yes, that certainly makes sense. Any specific requests there? Does
presenting it to INT area seems sufficient?
