With the significant interest in additional data below the end of stack, indicators for same and new things we can do with reserved labels I have put together a catalogue consisting of two parts

1) A list of RFCs that define the MPLS data plane as it exists today

2) The new proposals.

In each case I have included a very short summary of the document as an aide-memoire to their contents and changes as a result of other design decisions.

If I have any of this wrong or if I have missed RFCs or new proposals please let me know and I will update the text.

The purpose of this memo is bring things together to help us make informed decisions on the development of MPLS.

Best regards
