+1 to Anoop's comments. I've made similar comment to Greg privately, and 
Anoop's proposed text clears things up.

    Hi Greg,
    
    Yes this captures what I was trying to get added.
    
    Perhaps the last sentence can be changed to:
    
    "This document is written assuming the use of VXLAN for virtualized
    hosts and refers to VMs and VTEPs in hypervisors.  However, the
    concepts are equally applicable to non-virtualized hosts attached to
    VTEPs in switches."
    
    Thanks,
    Anoop
