I'm glad everyone that's commented to far also found it interesting. I certainly did!

It's not my work though, and I wished I'd caught the presentation at IETF 99. I picked up the link to day in a Slack group.

I had the same thought, yes. Very good question. I may try to get in touch with the authors. If I get around to that I'll certainly share more on this list.

I did do a little digging and found the video of the original presentation. It's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYtaKuzXaiM , starting from 37:10 approximately.

I'm still watching it now, so can't say if it makes anything clearer yet though.
