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.)
