What is "interdomain management" here?

The telephone system worked with path computaton, multimedia systems
work with path computation. Hence, path computation is obviously possible.

The central question is what we want to achieve at all. And when we want
to achieve proper resource management in TCP flows,
the very first step is to identify, which resources are shared and who
are the competing flows.

In my opinion, our actual system model is oversimplified and hence we
end up in a sequence of kludges here.
