   The TRILL (TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) protocol, by
   default, learns end station addresses from observing the data plane.
   In particular, it learns local MAC addresses and edge switch port of
   attachment from the receipt of local data frames and learns remote
   MAC addresses and edge switch of attachment from the decapsulation of
   remotely sourced TRILL Data packets.

   This document specifies a message by which a TRILL switch can
   explicitly request other TRILL switches to flush certain MAC
   reachability learned through the decapsulation of TRILL Data packets.
   This is a supplement to the TRILL automatic address forgetting and
   can assist in achieving more rapid convergence in case of topology or
   configuration change.
