Eric

I agree no standard change is required since this is a local optimization issue.

This seems to be what the draft suggests, but it could be done as an optimization for the particular case where the incoming and outgoing labels have the same value.  You could do this today, as a local implementation optimization. There doesn't seem to be any interop issue or any change to the data plane semantics.
