Or perhaps not wait for MRAI timers to collapse, and just immediately
process & propagate any changes as they come in? If you want to reduce
convergence timing, is it helpful to hold back communicating state
changes to your neighbors?

If you think some form of MRAI timing is useful you can of course
attempt to implement this yourself and submit a patch.

My point is that there is contention around the topic of MRAI and there
are widely deployed 'misimplementations'. Geoff Huston's comments on
this topic are quite insightful.

Kind regards,
