Title : OSPF Extensions to Support Multi-Area Traffic

The [MULTI-AREA] introduces a set of mechanisms that could be used
to construct LSPs that span multiple IS-IS/OSPF areas, where one
scenario is to allow the head-end LSR to compute the path all the
way to the ABR in the tail-end area. This document proposes some
new OSPF extensions that can be used in supporting that scenario,
i.e., by leaking some of the useful information from individual
areas to others, the constraint-based routing at the head-end LSR
of LSPs in OSPF networks with multiple areas can be optimized.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
