Reviewer: Al Morton
Review result: Ready

This memo recognizes the future exhaust of the  Optional Parameters Length
field in the BGP OPEN message (one  octet in length), and extends operation by
using the highest octet value (255) as the indication to increase the length of
the Optional Parameters in BGP OPEN. The authors clearly describe the operation
and cover possible errors. The memo seems ready after a long history of reviews.
