The Resource ReserVation Protocol (RSVP) defines an ERROR_SPEC object
for communicating errors.  That object has a defined format that
permits the definition of 256 error codes.  As RSVP has been
developed and extended, the convention has been to be conservative in
defining new error codes.  Further, no provision for user-defined
errors exists in RSVP.

This document defines a USER_ERROR_SPEC to be used in addition to the
ERROR_SPEC to carry additional user information related to errors.  

This document is a product of the Transport Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
