There hasn't been much discussion on the mapping churn rate. There have

I understand you're trying to nail down criteria, but I think it's
premature to put numbers on this. To start with, are you still using a
general definition of "mapping", or is the question specific to
intermediary-based map-n-encap? Second, are you assuming a single
database that needs to be updated, or allowing for multiple DBs or
distributed DB? Are you taking into account that in pull models
"outdated" mapping entries might still be valid?
It might be better to turn this on its side. Instead of organizing your
questions by different functions like mapping discovery/distribution,
organize them by the points where functions take place. So instead of
asking about "mapping churn rate at all possible places", how about "all
kinds of requirements at intermediate map-n-encap points"?
