You're absolutely correct. The current protocol requires no
modification, it's just relevant to the way the router handles
The thrust of my goal, mangled as it was, was that this become
fairly common and expected. If so, then one could communicate
and act upon routes based upon their associated BGP communities.
This, imho, would be a very good thing.
Bear in mind this is not terribly useful to the world if Cisco
does it alone, it should be tracked through IETF, but it would be
nice if Cisco did the proof-of-concept and led the pack.
But isn't what you described implementation details? I'm not sure if I
see a standard to track in this... Perhaps a better venue to track
something like this is an IEPG/RIPE/IOPS/etc.
