   This document describes how to use a Service Function Forwarder (SFF)
   Label (similar to a pseudowire label or VPN label) to indicate the
   presence of a Service Function Chaining (SFC) Network Service Header
   (NSH) between an MPLS label stack and the packet original packet/
   frame.  This allows SFC packets using the NSH to be forwarded between
   SFFs over an MPLS network, and to select one of multiple SFFs in the
   destination MPLS node.
