Hi Pavan,

Sorry for the delay in response. Please see inline:

The proposed text about the mapping between shared label and the bandwidth reservations would be a good start, and maybe the consequence of the reservation aggregation can also be described.

Thanks for the explanation. Yes both the send limitation and read limitation need to be taken into consideration. So in many cases decrement by some number other than 1 would be needed. 

Maybe it is worth mentioning that for transit nodes, the ETLD it sent is determined by both the received ETLD from previous hop and its read and send limitation in label processing?

Another point is the ETLD is defined in HOP_ATTRIBUTES subobject, which means the transit node will add a new ETLD Attributes TLV for itself, rather than modifying the ETLD attribute it received from the previous hop. Some update to the description about the ETLD manipulation may be needed to reflect this. 

I think all of the above can be done after the adoption. 

Best regards,
Jie
