This memo extends the Forwarding and Control Element Separation
(ForCES) model defined in RFC 5812 and updates that RFC to allow
complex data types for metadata, optional default values for data
types, and optional access types for structures.  It also fixes an
issue with Logical Functional Block (LFB) inheritance and introduces
two new features: a new event condition called eventBecomesEqualTo
and LFB properties.  The changes introduced in this memo do not alter
the protocol and retain backward compatibility with older LFB models.

This document is a product of the Forwarding and Control Element Separation Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
