Summary: Ready with minor issues


I have not reviewed most details of the MIB module itself. As usual,
I trust the MIB Doctors.

"We know of a handful of implementations (or intent to implement)."
Good. It would have been nice to see an Implementation Status section
under RFC 6982.

Minor issues:

   At the time of writing, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
   is no longer recommended as a way to configure MPLS networks as
   described in RFC 3812 [RFC3812].

RFC3812 is explicit that it should be used for configuration:

   This MIB module should be used in conjunction with the
   companion document [RFC3813] for MPLS based traffic engineering
   configuration and management.

RFC3812 has not been formally updated or obsoleted. Therefore, it
to me that the present draft should formally update RFC3812 in this

Does the same issue apply to RFC3813, whose Abstract also states that
it is used to configure an LSR?
