I would think it should be clear.
Rbridges should care about getting good connectivity between the
rbridges, not fixing bad connectivity for this media type or the other
because they might happen to be the media type used to connect the
rbridges. Should we also be specifying the way an rbridge interoperates
with an ADM if there happens to be one in the middle? Or perhaps a
The connectivity between the rbridges should be assumed, and we should
worry about how to emulate a bridged network over that connectivity. All
this stuff trying to figure out how to make it work over a specific
media in a specific situation should be put in another doc, if it's
discussed at all, and not in the base specification.
