   According to the base BGP specification, a BGP speaker that receives
   an UPDATE message containing a malformed attribute is required to
   reset the session over which the offending attribute was received.
   This behavior is undesirable, because a session reset would impact
   not only routes with the offending attribute, but also other, valid
   routes exchanged over the session.  This document partially revises
   the error handling for UPDATE messages and provides guidelines for
   the authors of documents defining new attributes.  Finally, it
   revises the error handling procedures for a number of existing

   This document updates error handling for RFCs 1997, 4271, 4360, 4456,
   4760, 5543, 5701 and 6368.
