There's a larger conversation to be had about proper stewardship and use of
code points of all sorts, but path attributes have our attention for the

A quick draft for consideration and to motivate discussion.

   BGP's primary feature extension mechanism, Optional-Transitive Path
   Attributes, has proven to be a successful mechanism to permit BGP to
   be extended.  In order to ease various issues during the development
   of new BGP features, this document proposes an extended experimental
   path attribute to carry prototype features.
