This document specifies the Intermediate System to Intermediate
System (IS-IS) extensions necessary to support link state routing for
any protocols running directly over Layer-2.  While supporting this
concept involves several pieces, this document only describes
extensions to IS-IS.  Furthermore, the Type, Length, Value pairs
(TLVs) described in this document are generic Layer-2 additions, and
specific ones as needed are defined in the IS-IS technology-specific
extensions.  We leave it to the systems using these IS-IS extensions
to explain how the information carried in IS-IS is used.  [STANDARDS-
