Very useful document and techniques; but, I am afraid that I have some issues
with this document in its present form: nothing on the actual technique but
rather on how the specification is written.


1) Section 3, I wonder why the "LSR Capability Discovery" TLV is not part of
another document: it seems so important to me that it would have deserved its
own document (and avoiding the fate sharing with the LAG discovery). Probably
too late to change anyway.

2) Section 3.2, while this section is about the generic discovery TLV, the text
in 3.2 is only about "LAG Description Indicator" flag. This text should rather
be in Section 4.

3) Traceroute with TTL expiring, will it require the 'expiring' LSR to check
for capability discovery ? Or is it a 2-step procedure (discover the path, then
ask for capabilities)?

4) Section 8, unclear to me where "Local Interface Index" is coming from... is
it an opaque value for the initiator or does it have any semantic ? Same
question applies to section 9 of course.

5) Section 10, in IPv6 any interface can have multiple IPv6 addresses, so, the
text such as "or the interface address" is not applicable, suggestion "or any
interface global address" (which can be ambiguous as well, perhaps the 'lowest'
address ?)


N1) Section 3.1, "it can send an MPLS each request message" I cannot parse this
part of the sentence

N2)Section 3.2, "When a responder LSR received" the use of past tense seems
weird in this sentence, esp when present tense is use after.
