   This document defines a BGP Path Attribute known as the "Tunnel
   Encapsulation Attribute", which can be used with BGP UPDATEs of
   various SAFIs to provide information needed to create tunnels and
   their corresponding encapsulation headers.  It provides encodings for
   a number of Tunnel Types along with procedures for choosing between
   alternate tunnels and routing packets into tunnels.

   This document obsoletes RFC 5512, which provided an earlier
   definition of the Tunnel Encapsulation Attribute.  RFC 5512 was never
   deployed in production.  Since RFC 5566 relies on RFC 5512, it is
   likewise obsoleted.  This document updates RFC 5640 by indicating
   that the Load-Balancing Block sub-TLV may be included in any Tunnel
   Encapsulation Attribute where load balancing is desired.
