Comment (2007-02-22 for -)
3.1. Procedures when sending the wildcard FEC ... If the PW Type cannot be supported or is "wildcard" it MUST respond to this message with a Label Release message with an LDP Status Code of "Generic Misconfiguration Error". Further actions are beyond the scope of this document but could include notifying the associated application (if any) or notifying network management. This will be difficult for human diagnosis. Wouldn't it be better to use a specific error code indicating a wildcard inconsistency? (Same comment applies to section 3.2.)
