There’s an RLD of 4. Placing a EL/ELI after A2 or A3 is effectively of null value practically. (E.g., A2 and A3 are specific links, but N1 and N2 are long loose paths). The places where LB could happen while the packet is switched with N1 and N2 will not have an EL/ELI readable, and A2 A3 won’t use EL/ELI.

Well, that was exactly my point...

What I tried to exemplify is that the algorithm does not differentiate between Node labels and Adj labels, and I am asking if it should...
