The signaling protocols used to establish point-to-point pseudowires
include type-length-value (TLV) fields that identify pseudowire
endpoints called attachment individual identifiers (AIIs).  This
document defines AII structures in the form of new AII TLV fields that
support AII aggregation for improved scalability and Virtual Private
Network (VPN) auto-discovery.  It is envisioned that this would be
useful in large inter-domain virtual private wire service networks
where pseudowires are established between selected local and remote
provider edge (PE) nodes based on customer need.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
