Hi Zhipeng,

I would just like to echo the comments from the opnfv-tech-discuss list (which I notice is still private?) in saying that there is very little detail on the wiki page describing what you actually intend to do. Given this, it's very hard to provide any meaningful feedback. A lot more detail is required, particularly if you intend to propose a specification based on this idea.
