According to the base BGP specification, a BGP speaker that receives
an UPDATE message containing a malformed attribute is required to
reset the session over which the offending attribute was received.
This behavior is undesirable as a session reset would impact not only
routes with the offending attribute, but also other valid routes
exchanged over the session. This document partially revises the
error handling for UPDATE messages, and provides guidelines for the
authors of documents defining new attributes. Finally, it revises
the error handling procedures for a number of existing attributes.
