This document defines a mechanism for the reoptimization of loosely
routed MPLS and GMPLS (Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching)
Traffic Engineering (TE) Label Switched Paths (LSPs) signaled with
Resource Reservation Protocol Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE).  This 
document proposes a mechanism that allows a TE LSP head-end Label 
Switching Router (LSR) to trigger a new path re-evaluation on every hop 
that has a next hop defined as a loose or abstract hop and a mid-point 
LSR to signal to the head-end LSR that a better path exists (compared to 
the current path) or that the TE LSP must be reoptimized (because of
maintenance required on the TE LSP path).  The proposed mechanism
applies to the cases of intra- and inter-domain (Interior Gateway
Protocol area (IGP area) or Autonomous System) packet and non-packet
TE LSPs following a loosely routed path.  This memo provides information 
for the Internet community.
