In addition, to deal with the values for the GA field, we will replace

   The Global Administrator field is intended to allow different
   Autonomous Systems to define Large BGP Communities without collision.

with

  A Large Community that
  is intended to be sent to multiple ASes SHOULD contain an ASN
  in the Global Administrator field. The ASN SHOULD be one that
  is assigned to the entity
  that defines the meaning of the rest of the Large Community.
  This allows a route to carry multiple Large Communities, the meaning
  of each being defined by different independent entities.

Thanks,
Jakob.
