COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for the work put into this document. It sounds like it is really a
useful extension to BGP-4.

Having written that, I must admit that I failed to understand the mechanism at
first reading. It took me a while to cross reference this doc + IANA registry +
RFC 4271 (but, for sure, I am not a BGP SW engineer!).

I suggest to mention, in section 2, that the Code Capability IANA registry for
255 was reserved per RFC 8810 (so not causing interoperation) as well as using
the actual values 255 in figure 1 and finally add the figure 4.2 from RFC 4271
to be crystal clear for the reader.

Should the "new speaker" behavior be specified when an "old speaker" close the
connection ? I.e., retry if possible without using this specification ?

I hope that this helps to improve the document,

Regards,
