Technical Summary

   In this document we enhance the existing BGP route refresh mechanisms
   to provide for the demarcation of the beginning and the ending of a
   route refresh.  The enhancement can be used to facilitate correction
   of BGP RIB inconsistencies in a non-disruptive manner.

Working Group Summary

  WG discussion was extremely active and produced
 changes that were fed back into the implementations of
 3 router vendors. 

Document Quality

Debate provided good feedback and refinement for 3 implementations. 
2 Implementations (Cisco and NTT I3) are described the implementation report:
