IMO the biggest hurdle for the most that take part in this discussion is
their expertise on traditional IETF (BGP) routing. My recommendation: Lean back,
forget about all the details, ignore what is a RIB or FIB, or stretch or other
measurements,but trust yourself. Let loose. Don't be afraid of any revolutionary
solution. Because at the end, there will be enough time and opportunity to think
about how the existing machinery (OSPF,BGP) can be utilized for any solution
that will replace exactly these routing protocols.

wondering how much precision there should be in the goals.
Just to take the
first one as an example:

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 measure N?
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
BTW another point
occurred to me when reading the Asbtract
RRG is designing

If we want the broader
community to take any notice of the promised design,
it seems necessary to
get some measure of buy-in from the broader community
for the goals, once
they have taken shape.
