The RSVP ASSOCIATION object was defined in the context of GMPLS-controlled
Label Switched Paths (LSPs).  In this context, the object is used to
associate recovery LSPs with the LSP they are protecting.  This
object also has broader applicability as a mechanism to associate
RSVP state.  This document defines how the ASSOCIATION object
can be more generally applied.  This document also defines
Extended ASSOCIATION objects that, in particular, can be used in
the context of the MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP).  This document 
updates RFC 2205, RFC 3209, and RFC 3473.  It also generalizes the 
definition of the Association ID field defined in RFC 4872.

This document is a product of the Common Control and Measurement Plane Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
