Personally, I care less about which notation we choose to express four-byte ASNs than that *everyone choose one notation*. Choosing a mediocre notation and using it consistently would be better than having to live forever with multiple notations. Operating a heterogenous network is hard enough already. As to whether this is within the scope of the IETF, note that they are already going far, far beyond this in the Netconf WG, which is defining a complete router configuration protocol. http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/netconf-charter.html http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-netconf-prot-12.txt -- Shields.
