   Deployment experience has demonstrated the value of using the
   Forwarding and Control Element Separation (ForCES) architecture to
   manage resources other than packet forwarding.  In that spirit, the
   Forwarding Element Manager (FEM) is modelled by creating a Logical
   Functional Block (LFB) to represent its functionality.  We refer to
   this LFB as the FE Configuration (FEC) LFB.  A Control Element (CE)
   that controls a Forwarding Element's (FE) resources can also manage
   its configuration via the FEC LFB.  This document introduces the FEC
   LFB, an LFB that specifies the configuration parameters of an FE.
