They could be independent. For example, the operators may decide to
allocate less bandwidth to the backup LSP's. On the other hand, the
FAST-REROUTE parameters could be the same the one used in the primary
LSP's. We want to provide alternative options here.

The downstream ID is one of the nodes at downstream from the router,
which could be multiple hops and links away. Of course you can also use
it to protect one link. The logic used at a penultimate hop is the same
as all others.
