Deborah Brungard is the document shepherd.
She has personally reviewed the I-D and believes it is ready for
forwarding to the IESG for publication.
> (1.b) Has the document had adequate review both from key WG members
> and from key non-WG members? Does the Document Shepherd have

> have been performed?
I-D had good review and discussion in the CCAMP working
group doing its development. The discrepency in RFC 4420 addressed by this
document was identified by a forum during interoperability testing and
communicated to CCAMP.
> (1.c) Does the Document Shepherd have concerns that the document

No concerns. No IPR disclosures have been filed.

Consensus is good.
> (1.f) Has anyone threatened an appeal or otherwise indicated extreme

No threats. No discontent.
> (1.g) Has the Document Shepherd personally verified that the
> document satisfies all ID nits? (See

> not enough; this check needs to be thorough. Has the document

All checks made.
> (1.h) Has the document split its references into normative and
> informative? Are there normative references to documents that

References split. No downward references.

> of the document? If the document specifies protocol

The IANA allocations made for RFC 4420 apply to this document.
No new IANA allocations are needed. In Section 11 "IANA Considerations",
it is requested for IANA to update RFC 4420 registry entries to
reference this document.
> (1.j) Has the Document Shepherd verified that sections of the
> document that are written in a formal language, such as XML

No such formal language is used.

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Paths (LSPs) may be
established using the Resource Reservation Protocol Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE)
extensions. This protocol includes an object (the SESSION_ATTRIBUTE object) that
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 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 to make RSVP-TE easily
extensible to support new requirements. Additionally, this document defines a way
to record the attributes applied to the LSP on a hop-by-hop basis.
The object mechanisms defined in this document are equally applicable to Generalized MPLS
(GMPLS) Packet Switch Capable (PSC) LSPs and
to GMPLS non-PSC LSPs.
This document replaces and obsoletes the previous version of this work published as RFC 4420.
The only change is in the encoding of the Type-Length-Variable (TLV) data structures.

There are a substantial number of implementations. Interoperability testing
by a forum identified the discrepency in RFC 4420 which is addressed by this
