This document defines simple additions to the Link Management
Protocol (LMP) to provide a control plane tool that can assist in
the location of stranded resources by allowing adjacent Label-Switching
Routers (LSRs) to confirm data channel statuses and provide triggers for
notifying the management plane if any discrepancies are found.  As LMP is
already used to verify data plane connectivity, it is considered to be an
appropriate candidate to support this feature.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
