The IESG has received a request from the Multiprotocol Label Switching WG
(mpls) to consider the following document: - 'Synonymous Flow Label Framework'
  <draft-ietf-mpls-sfl-framework-08.txt> as Informational RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
last-call@ietf.org mailing lists by 2020-07-06. Exceptionally, comments may
be sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning
of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   RFC 8372 (MPLS Flow Identification Considerations) describes the
   requirement for introducing flow identities within the MPLS
   architecture.  This document describes a method of accomplishing this
   by using a technique called Synonymous Flow Labels in which labels
   which mimic the behaviour of other labels provide the identification
   service.  These identifiers can be used to trigger per-flow
   operations on the packet at the receiving label switching router.
