> 'easily'  mmm... I have been getting my mind around this and see what Acee means and agree.  The I-D specifies an MPLS address family but then does not create the RIB entries for it in the way that e.g. IPv4 unicast does in  RFC8349.  Easy may be but quite a change Another option, again a significant change, would be to cater only for IP address family with MPLS and drop the MPLS address family. Either way, whatever the authors decide, I cannot personally see this falling within the scope or an Erratum or for the IETF Last Call to complete in a week's time.

I had not seen MPLS as an alternative to IPv4 or IPv6 or ... in the way in which the RFC is used although the RFC does state that it can be; rather, to me, labels are a different animal, but I assumed that everyone knew what they were doing.

I raised this on the NETMOD list at the time of WGLC and Martin pointed me to a rule in the ABNF which prohibits such a check.  He also said that the rule was not needed and would be a candidate to remove when YANG is revised.

The intent of the RPC is to return the address-family specific active-route corresponding to the destination-address. This model attempts to overload this RPC with a different action all together - returning a route that has the local-label as an optional attribute. I'd reject the Errata and believe the augmentation should be removed from ietf-mpl.yang. Whether it is replaced with a different one is up to the co-authors of ietf-mpls.yang.
