I don't quite understand where you're coming from.

Do you mean you agree with making this a WG document?

I think we understand those.

I don't see why or how it would. From the DT recommendation text:

                 Another positive aspect of the PLSN method is that it does not
   preclude later extensions to improve coverage and prevent loops for 
   left out by PLSN by employing other mechanisms for them (e.g. tunnel-based or
   FIB ordering).

I don't understand what you mean here.
