This document defines the forwarding element (FE) model used in the
Forwarding and Control Element Separation (ForCES) protocol.  The
model represents the capabilities, state, and configuration of
forwarding elements within the context of the ForCES protocol, so
that control elements (CEs) can control the FEs accordingly.  More
specifically, the model describes the logical functions that are
present in an FE, what capabilities these functions support, and how
these functions are or can be interconnected.  This FE model is
intended to satisfy the model requirements specified in RFC 3654. 

This document is a product of the Forwarding and Control Element Separation 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
