The IESG has received a request from the Multiprotocol Label Switching WG
(mpls) to consider the following document:
- 'Encapsulating MPLS in UDP'
  <draft-ietf-mpls-in-udp-09.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2015-01-12. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract


   This document specifies an IP-based encapsulation for MPLS, called
   MPLS-in-UDP (User Datagram Protocol) for situations where UDP
   encapsulation is preferred to direct use of MPLS, e.g., to enable
   UDP-based ECMP (Equal Cost Multi-Pathing) or link aggregation.  MPLS-
   in-UDP is primarily applicable to service provider networks, and
   additional restrictions apply to MPLS-in-UDP usage for traffic that
   is not congestion controlled and to UDP zero checksum usage with
   IPv6.
