Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) can be used to control a
wide variety of technologies.  In some of these technologies, network
elements and links may impose additional routing constraints such as
asymmetric switch connectivity, non-local label assignment, and
label range limitations on links.

This document provides efficient, protocol-agnostic encodings for
general information elements representing connectivity and label
constraints as well as label availability.  It is intended that
protocol-specific documents will reference this memo to describe how
information is carried for specific uses.

This document is a product of the Common Control and Measurement Plane 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.
