Dear All,
the new draft, draft-mirsky-bfd-mpls-demand
<>, was
at MPLS WG meeting in Prague. The draft proposes how the BFD Demand mode
can be used over MPLS p2p LSP. One of use cases that likely benefit from
the described procedures, in my opinion, is when multiple BFD sessions
established for the same FEC between the same pair of BFD nodes, e.g. ECMP
scenario, as described in RFC 7726.

Greatly appreciate your reviews, comments, questions and suggestions.
