This document describes the requirements for using the Generic
Associated Channel Label (GAL) in pseudowires (PWs) in MPLS Transport 
Profile (MPLS-TP) networks, and provides an update to the description 
of GAL usage in RFC 5586 by removing the restriction that is imposed 
on using GAL for PWs, especially in MPLS-TP environments.
