There is no mention of the fact that individual nodes in a network are free to
implement different algorithms without impacting the interoperability or
function of the network.

I agree with the DISCUSS from Pete Resnick that this seems like a Standards
Track document, not a BCP.

I found this document clear and hope it has the impact the group intends.
I support Pete's discuss though - why did the group choose BCP as the intended
status for this document?

Maybe add (e.g., by using IPsec between the two tunnel end-points) to the end
of the 2nd sentence in the security considerations.  Just to provide an example
of how it might be done.

A reference to draft-ietf-mpls-entropy-label-00 would seem appropriate since
they seek to achieve the same though at different layers.
