   Segment Routing (SR) leverages the source routing paradigm.  A node
   steers a packet through an ordered list of instructions, called
   segments.  Segment Routing can be applied to the Multi Protocol Label
   Switching (MPLS) data plane.  Entropy label (EL) is a technique used
   in MPLS to improve load-balancing.  This document examines and
   describes how ELs are to be applied to Segment Routing when applied
   to the MPLS dataplane.
