Hi Lou,

The authors met and reviewed the proposal to use the RSVP Association
object as a mechanism to relay the per-group bypass assignment information
between the PLR(s) and MP(s). We agree that since the Association object
as proposed is used to associate recovery LSP with the LSPs it is
protecting can serve the purpose of associating a group of protected
LSP(s) with a bypass LSP. We are looking into extending the IPv4/IPv6
Extended ASSOCIATION Object (as defined in rfc6780) to carry the necessary
Summary FRR information between the PLR and MP. We plan to add this in the
next revision of the document.
