[EFM] Should There Be A Sequence Number In Variable Request/Response PDUs?
Variable Request and
Response PDUs don't have a sequence number field.
If one is allowed to send multiple outstanding Variable
Requests, then how is to match a response to its corresponding request? Should not we introduce a sequence
number? Sure, to some extent one could match them
by looking at what variables are included, but it's not a sure
If the intention is not to
allow more than one Variable Request at a time, which I think is reasonable in
order to keep the OAM operation simple, then a note to that effect in the
standard would be nice.
