Indeed. If mandatory, well-known attributes are removed, then the BGP 
protocol version number needs to be bumped.

There's near-0-cost in doing that for those interested in implementing the 
new functionality, and it avoids a world of hurt for all the various tools 
(sometimes in-house/home-grown) out there that believe they know what 
they're getting when the version says 4.
