The existing EVPN multi-homing load-balancing modes defined are Single-Active and All-Active. Neither of these multi-homing mechanisms are appropriate to support access networks with Layer-2 Gateway protocols such as G.8032, MPLS-TP, STP, etc. These Layer-2 Gateway protocols require a new multi-homing mechanism defined in this draft.
