Section MplsLabel says:
* The Generalized-MPLS (GMPLS) label contains a value greater than 2^24-1 and used in GMPLS as defined in [RFC3471]."
It should say:
* The Generalized-MPLS (GMPLS) label may contain a value greater than 2^24-1 and is used in GMPLS as defined in [RFC3471]."
The orriginal text implied that GMPLS labels could only be greater than
(2^24 - 1). In fact all label alues are supported.
