Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) signaling can be used to make
end-to-end resource reservations in an IP network in order to
guarantee the Quality of Service (QoS) required by certain flows.
With conventional RSVP, both the data sender and receiver of a given
flow take part in RSVP signaling.  Yet, there are many use cases
where resource reservation is required, but the receiver, the sender,
or both, is not RSVP-capable.  Where the receiver is not RSVP-
capable, an RSVP router may behave as an RSVP Receiver Proxy, thereby
performing RSVP signaling on behalf of the receiver.  This allows
resource reservations to be established on the segment of the end-to-
end path from the sender to the RSVP Receiver Proxy.  However, as
discussed in the companion document "RSVP Proxy Approaches", RSVP
extensions are needed to facilitate operations with an RSVP Receiver
Proxy whose signaling is triggered by receipt of RSVP Path messages
from the sender.  This document specifies these extensions.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
