The resource reservation protocol [RSVP] is an end-to-end signaling protocol and it can be a useful mechanism to carry the upstream node or network capabilities/willingness to the downstream network/nodes. This draft proposes a capability negotiation object, CAP object, in the RSVP PATH message that can be used to convey end host/upstream node capabilities to the downstream network/nodes.
