Congratulations for the production of this RFC!
This draft is useful not only for MVPN using mLDP/RSVP-TE/IR(which is covered by this RFC), but also for MVPN using BIER (which is covered by BIER-MVPN draft). It can be leveraged to Segmented MVPN too, by using a 'loose stitching' between mLDP/RSVP-TE/IR/BIER. This is described in draft-xie-bess-mvpn-segmented-updates-00. Jeffrey generalize it and extended to EVPN case, and described in draft-zzhang-bess-mvpn-evpn-segmented-forwarding-00. Hope they are right to be in BESS WG, and please offer suggestions/comments on them.

RFC 8534 Title: Explicit Tracking with Wildcard Routes in Multicast VPN Author: A. Dolganow, J. Kotalwar, E. Rosen, Ed., Z. Zhang Status: Standards Track Stream: IETF Date: February 2019 Mailbox: andrew.dolga...@nokia.com, jayant.kotal...@nokia.com, erose...@gmail.com, zzh...@juniper.net Pages: 21 Characters: 49896 Updates: RFC 6514, RFC 6625, RFC 7524, RFC 7582, RFC 7900 I-D Tag: draft-ietf-bess-mvpn-expl-track-13.txt URL: https://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc8534 DOI: 10.17487/RFC8534 The base Multicast VPN (MVPN) specifications (RFCs 6513 and 6514) provide procedures to allow a multicast ingress node to invoke "explicit tracking" for a multicast flow or set of flows, thus learning the egress nodes for that flow or set of flows. However, the specifications are not completely clear about how the explicit tracking procedures work in certain scenarios. This document provides the necessary clarifications. It also specifies a new, optimized explicit-tracking procedure. This new procedure allows an ingress node, by sending a single message, to request explicit tracking of each of a set of flows, where the set of flows is specified using a wildcard mechanism. This document updates RFCs 6514, 6625, 7524, 7582, and 7900. This document is a product of the BGP Enabled Services Working Group of the IETF. This is now a Proposed Standard. STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.
