Hi Gary,
The new L2GW spec is [1] comes to enable inter-cloud connection to stretch
the network between the local and the remote clouds using tunnels between
border VTEP devices.
VTEP can be populated manually with remote MAC (optionally) IP entries.
BGP support is a bit orthogonal or may I say complementary.
