Here's a suggestion...from the Introduction:

OLD>
   These administrative groups are defined as a fixed-length 32-bit
   bitmask.  As networks grew and more use-cases were introduced, the
   32-bit length was found to be constraining and hence extended
   administrative groups (EAG) were introduced in [RFC7308].

   This document specifies an extension to BGP-LS for advertisement of
   the extended administrative groups.

NEW (append, or add as a new paragraph)>
   The EAG TLV (Section 2) is not a replacement for the Administrative
   Group (color) TLV; as explained in [RFC7308] both values can coexist.
   It is out of scope for this document to specify the behavior of the
   BGP-LS consumer [RFC7752].


Would that work?

Thanks!

Alvaro.
