   Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) has defined a mechanism to load
   balance traffic flows using Entropy Labels (EL).  An ingress Label
   Switching Router (LSR) cannot insert ELs for packets going into a
   given tunnel unless an egress LSR has indicated via signaling that it
   has the capability of processing ELs, referred to as Entropy Label
   Capability (ELC), on that tunnel.  In addition, it would be useful
   for ingress LSRs to know each LSR's capability of reading the maximum
   label stack depth and performing EL-based load-balancing, referred to
   as Entropy Readable Label Depth (ERLD), in the cases where stacked
   LSPs are used for whatever reasons.  This document defines mechanisms
   to signal these two capabilities using OSPF.  These mechanisms are
   useful when the label advertisement is also done via OSPF.  In
   addition, this document introduces the Non-IGP Functional
   Capabilities TLV for advertising OSPF router's actual non-IGP
   functional capabilities.  ELC is one of such non-IGP functional
