I think this should be a WG item. Also I think we need to make sure that it
is clear we are selecting a simple algorithm. It seems to be that
discussion of the complexity overshadows the benefit of this work.
IMHO what is important in this document is we have cases where we installed
loop free alternates due to a topology change and we need to switch to the
converged shortest path primaries when they become micro-loop free to get
back to normal forwarding.
It is a simple case of install new primaries this too fast and you negate
the value of the LFA. Do it too slow and you unduly affect traffic
convergence (of the LFA paths) and the possibly ability to install LFA for
the next topology change. (IMHO Neither of these is serious and still better
than the situation without LFA).
