After many cycles of discussion, we have concluded that this issue is not as simple as it appears. There are many consequences of a change to this text with the conclusion that this would be a technical change that is best addressed through full WG discussion and the RFC process. Thus, anyone concerned about this issue should write an Internet-Draft and bring it to the MPLS working group.
