i) I support this proposal.
Apart from the text section mentioned below, the different versions of the
draft (at least the initial ones) have presented, from the available options
and IMHO, Y.1731 as the readiest/closest most to requirements. On the other
hand, this section looks to want being a memorandum about decisions regarding
OAM, which didn't follow that option. So, it's important not to put ITU-T or
MEAD in subject for that.
ii) " [RFC 6375]
augments that set of identifiers to include identifier information
in a format used by the ITU-T"
Is the intended reference [MPLS TP ITU Idents],
draft-ietf-mpls-tp-itu-t-identifiers? 6375's related to packet loss and delay
measurements, not to identifiers.

Subject: Re: Last Call: <draft-ietf-mpls-tp-oam-analysis-08.txt> (An Overview
of the OAM Tool Set for MPLS based Transport Networks) to Informational RFC
I do *NOT* support this draft unless the following changes are made:
The first paragraph of section 8 Acknowledgements has to be removed:
It is an attempt to capture history, but lacks accuracy.
Removal does not impact the technical information in the draft; the tools have
evolved significantly from the strawman tools proposed in Stockholm; some
members of the MEAD team (I am one of them) do not consider that an agreement
on this proposal was reached.
I also request the removal of my name from this acknowledgements section since
I do not support this tool set, neither as an individual nor as ITU-T Q10
rapporteur. The latter is implied by mentioning my name in the same sentence as
a WG chair and ADs.
The IESG has received a request from the Multiprotocol Label Switching
(mpls) to consider the following document:
- 'An Overview of the OAM Tool Set for MPLS based Transport Networks'
<draft-ietf-mpls-tp-oam-analysis-08.txt> as an Informational RFC
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(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org mailing lists by 2012-03-23. Exceptionally, comments
be sent to iesg(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org instead. In either case, please retain
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.
This document provides an overview of the OAM toolset for MPLS based
Transport Networks. The toolset consists of a comprehensive set of
fault management and performance monitoring capabilities (operating
in the data-plane) which are appropriate for transport networks as
required in RFC 5860 and support the network and services at
different nested levels. This overview includes a brief recap of
MPLS-TP OAM requirements and functions, and of generic mechanisms
created in the MPLS data plane to allow the OAM packets run in-band
and share their fate with data packets. The protocol definitions for
each of the MPLS-TP OAM tools are defined in separate documents (RFCs
or Working Group drafts) which are referenced by this document.
