That’s all well and good, but we don’t have an algorithm to really put on the 
table yet.  We need experience with one.  We know we want to tweak things based 
on biconnectivity, performance, and degree because doing it right day one seems 
unlikely.  Changing algorithms is going to be VERY painful if it’s distributed.

However, if it’s centralized, it’s completely trivial.

I find this reasoning quite compelling.

I would leave the door open for both and not limit the solution to one or the other.

As an example, draft-li-dynamic-flooding-05 supports both centralized and distributed mode of operation.
