Good. Let's think about this a little more before jumping on it.
Meanwhile, one thought I had while reading this thread: Stewart, you
suggested that the max delay is found during the SPF calculation. It seems
(or I hope ;) you didn't mean finding destination-specific max values, but
instead merely using SPF's graph exploration property--visiting all
While this would work algorithmically, I would instead prefer finding the
max among all available announcements, whether the corresponding nodes are
momentarily reachable or not. This would be more robust, easier to debug,
and save extra fluctuations when the network topology changes. If any of
the routers becomes unreachable for an extended period of time, its
LSAs/LSPs would finally age out and hence taken out of consideration.
