Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Paths (LSPs) may
be established using the Resource Reservation Protocol Traffic
Engineering extensions (RSVP-TE). This protocol includes an object
(the SESSION_ATTRIBUTE object) which carries a flags field used to
indicate options and attributes of the LSP. That flags field has
eight bits allowing for eight options to be set.
Recent proposals in many documents that extend RSVP-TE for signaling
additional features and function for MPLS LSPs have suggested uses
for each of the previously unused bits.
This document defines a new object for RSVP-TE messages that allows
the signaling of further attribute bits and also the carriage of
arbitrary attribute parameters. This makes RSVP-TE easily extensible
to support new requirements.

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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
