[rbridge] FYI: liaisons between the IESG and IEEE 802.1

Hi, Eric, et al.,
If our extensions are specific to the different mechanisms in TRILL,
they should not interfere with similar mechanisms available in 802.1 --
in fact, they provide added value by supporting those mechanisms in the
context of IS-IS routing, IMO.
I have always understood whether this is the case by considering an
entire TRILL campus as emulating a single 802.1 device - as an acid
test, if not as an architectural goal. I raised that issue early in the
TRILL architecture discussions, and it was dismissed, but it might be
useful to consider it - even as a thought experiment - for the issues
between the IETF and IEEE raised in the exchange noted below, IMO.
