Please note the new version of draft-sprecher-mpls-tp-oam-consideration (03) that was just submitted.
In this version we attempted to satisfy the Last Call comments we got. Diffs can be used to see the changes from version 01 (https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-sprecher-mpls-tp-oam-considerations/history/). Among the major changes are the following:
• Former sections 4 and 5 became appendices. The descriptions of some of the examples were refined based on input we got from the reviewers. In particular the example of SONET/SDH was updated with corrected facts that were provided by Huub.
• A clarification to the use of the term “transport” in the context of this document was added.
• A reference to RFC1958 (which is the context in which the document should be read) was added in the introduction.
• A reference to RFC 5921 was added in the introduction.
• More acronyms, references and acknowledgments were added.
Note that we are working with the AD (Adrian Farrel) to send emails to respond to a number of people who commented on the list.
We would like to thank all those that reviewed the document and provided useful comments that helped us improve the quality of the document.

Title : The Reasons for Selecting a Single Solution for MPLS-TP OAM

The MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is a profile of the MPLS
technology for use in transport network deployments. The work on
MPLS-TP has extended the MPLS technology with additional
architectural elements and functions that can be used in any MPLS
deployment. MPLS-TP is a set of functions and features selected from
the extended MPLS toolset and applied in a consistent way to meet the
needs and requirements of operators of packet transport networks.
During the process of development of the profile, additions to the
MPLS toolset have been made to ensure that the tools available met
the requirements. These additions were motivated by MPLS-TP, but
form part of the wider MPLS toolset such that any of them could be
used in any MPLS deployment.
One major set of additions provides enhanced support for Operations,
Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). This enables fault management
and performance monitoring to the level needed in a transport
network. Many solutions and protocol extensions have been proposed
to address the requirements for MPLS-TP OAM, and this document sets
out the reasons for selecting a single, coherent set of solutions for
