Hi,

Thanks for this short doc, and sorry for the discuss, but hopefully it is
fairly easy to resolve ...

I think that it would be helpful for this document to explicitly state how this
attribute behaves in conjunction with the existing Administrative Group (color)
TLV (1088).  E.g., is the expectation that if this attribute is published then
the 1088 attribute would also always be published (with the same first 32
bits)?  Or is the expectation that this attribute can be published without the
1088 attribute being published at all?

Similarly, if a client receives both attributes there are there any
expectations to how it handles those, i.e., should it always use the new
attribute in preference?  Or otherwise, what should it do if the values were
inconsistent between the two attributes?

Regards,
Rob
