OSPF is a link-state intra-domain routing protocol used in IP
networks.  OSPF routers exchange information on a link using packets
that follow a well-defined format.  The format of OSPF packets is not
flexible enough to enable applications to exchange arbitrary data, which
may be necessary in certain situations.  This memo describes a
vendor-specific, backward-compatible technique to perform link-local
signaling, i.e., exchange arbitrary data on a link.  This memo defines an 
Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet
