There are situations following Label Distribution Protocol (LDP)
session establishment where it would be useful for an LDP speaker to
know when its peer has advertised all of its labels.  The LDP
specification provides no mechanism for an LDP speaker to notify a
peer when it has completed its initial label advertisements to that
peer.  This document specifies means for an LDP speaker to signal
completion of its initial label advertisements following session
establishment.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
