Agree with Anton on the use of Node IPvX Local Address sub-TLVs as it provides the flexibility to advertise more/other addresses. If we were to use IPvX Router Address TLVs then we could only do one per node.
My comment was that in most cases, advertising just that one IPvX address (generally equivalent to what would have been put in IPvX Router Address TLV) is sufficient and that this it should be a MUST (instead of SHOULD). Other addresses may be optional as indicated in the draft.

What you are suggesting is essentially the same sort of information propagated in different TE TLV. So basically except for TLV type rest of of procedures won't change. When writing the first revision of the draft we did consider doing what you are proposing but finally Node IPvX Local Address sub-TLV looked like a better match to what we intend to advertise. Per RFC 5786 Node IPvX Local Address sub-TLV is used to advertise additional addresses local to the router. And that is exactly what we use it for, to advertise additional router's addresses. As for the other Ketan's comment - as I already wrote, we will try to address it in the next document revision. --- Anton On 10/25/18 23:19, Alexander Okonnikov wrote: > Hi Anton, > > I tend to agree with Ketan, but with slightly different proposal. > Would not it be simpler to advertise IPv6 Router Address TLV (TLV type > 3) by > OSPFv2 Opaque LSA (in addition to advertising of Router Address TLV) > and to advertise Router Address TLV (TLV type 1) by OSPFv3 > Intra-Area-TE-LSA (in addition to advertising IPv6 Router Address > TLV)?
