	Title           : Revised Definition of The GMPLS Switching Capability and Type Fields

   GMPLS provides control for multiple switching technologies, and
   hierarchical switching within a technology.  GMPLS routing and
   signaling use common values to indicate switching technology type.
   These values are carried in routing in the Switching Capability
   field, and in signaling in the Switching Type field. While the
   values using in these fields are the primary indicators of the
   technology and hierarchy level being controlled, the values are
   not consistently defined and used across the different
   technologies supported by GMPLS.  This document is intended to
   resolve the inconsistent definition and use of the Switching
   Capability and Type fields by narrowly scoping the meaning and use
   of the fields.  This document updates any document that uses the
   GMPLS Switching Capability and Types fields, in particular RFC
   3471, RFC 4202, RFC 4203, and RFC 5307.
