New revision to ask IANA to add this document as a reference in the
appropriate registry (as suggested by Hari).

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
This draft is a work item of the Path Computation Element WG of the IETF.

        Title           : Updated Rules for Processing Stateful PCE Request
Parameters Flags
        Author          : Adrian Farrel
	Filename        : draft-farrel-pce-stateful-flags-02.txt
	Pages           : 6
	Date            : 2019-09-23

   Extensions to the Path Computation Element communications Protocol
   (PCEP) to support stateful Path Computation Elements (PCEs) are
   defined in RFC 8231.  One of the extensions is the Stateful PCE
   Request Parameters (SRP) object.  That object includes a Flags field
   that is a set of 32 bit flags, and RFC 8281 defines an IANA registry
   for tracking assigned flags.  However, RFC 8231 does not explain how
   an implementation should set unassigned flags in transmitted
   messages, nor how an implementation should process unassigned,
   unknown, or unsupported flags in received messages.

   This document updates RFC 8231 by defining the correct behaviors.
