Abstract 

   The Link Management Protocol (LMP) is used to coordinate the 
   properties, use, and faults of data links in Generalized 
   Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) networks. This document 
   defines an extension to LMP to negotiate capabilities and indicate 
   support for LMP extensions. The defined extension is compatible 
   with non-supporting implementations.
