Hello Jurgen,
OK, I will add some text about:

datastore selection, default being running/operational for config true/false data, mentioning NMDA.

I will add a ida:datastore metadata that can placed on any any data-node (?)

A section about a use case of having examples in documents

regards Balazs

If there is no config false instance, how do I decide?

The YANG model explicitly states whether data is config=false or true.
For config=true data it is always the running datastore
For config=false data it only depends on the NMDA support. E.g. the yanglib
model will be used on new and old servers too.
Also it is an explicit aim of the draft that we should allow mixing of
config=true and config=false data in the same instance data set.

Would you prefer that I add as metadata "ida:config-datastore=XXX" ? Here
XXX could be running or some dynamic (e.g. SDN) with default being running.
Or do you see any use case for documenting/loading candidate, startup,
intended or operational data for config=true ? If so please describe.

Config=false data it will always go into operational or "other" in case of a
preNMDA server; so I don't see a need for any extra selector here.
I see a use case of having examples in documents (which likely are not
even complete) and I think tools prefer to know upfront which
datastore the example belongs to without first doing complex
