Summary: This document specifies how Entropy Label Capability (ELC) and Entropy
Readable Label Depth (ERLD) are advertised using IS-IS. For advertising ELC, a
flag in the Prefix Attribute Flags is used. For advertising ERLD, a Node MSD
Advertisement is used.

Major issues:

Minor issues: The document is short and straightforward. For someone like me
who is not familiar with the routing area, would it make sense to explain why
signalling ELC information with MPLS is not sufficient (or what are the
benefits of advertising with IS-IS)?

Nits/editorial comments:

In section 3, "used as the ECL  Flag" should perhaps be "used as the ELC Flag"?
In section 4, "IANA for EARLD-MSD" should perhaps be "IANA for ERLD-MSD"?
In section 6, "ECL Flag (E-flag)." should perhaps be "ELC Flag (E-flag)."?
