Technical Summary

   This document describes a solution in which the control plane
   protocol specified in BGP/MPLS IP VPNs is used to provide a Virtual
   Network service to end-systems.  These end-systems may be used to
   provide network services or may directly host end-to-end

Working Group Summary
   No particular controversy. No-one expressed oneself against adoption,
   and there was large support in favor. After adoption, nothing beyond
   the usual comments/revision cycle.

Document Quality:

   The document is well-written, with concision and a good balance between 
   specification language and practical examples.

   One opensource implementation of the protocol is known ( 
   Note that this is an implementation of an earlier version of the specs, in the process 
   of being updated.
