Hi Michael,

I've been YANG-averse for too long.  I just looked and it seems like a
pretty sensible design overall.  Much more readable than the JSON
content rules.

Do you know if the outer object can be stripped off?  Context is
usually sufficient to avoid that extra layer (and HTTP provides
content-type to provide that context).

Reading https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc7951#section-4 it
appears as though the obvious schema for capport [1] would end up with
instance documents looking like this:

   { "capport:capport" { "captive": false, "end": "2017-01-01T12:22Z" } }

That extra wrapping is a little annoying.  Not fatal, of course.

module capport {
  yang-version 1.1;
  namespace "urn:...:ietf:...:capport";
  prefix "capport";
  import ietf-yang-types {
    prefix yang;
  // ... metadata stuff
  container top {
    leaf captive {
      type boolean;
    leaf end {
      type yang:date-and-time;
