1.  Introduction

   The Dynamic Link Event Protocol (DLEP) is defined in [RFC8175].  It
   provides the exchange of link related control information between
   DLEP peers.  DLEP peers are comprised of a modem and a router.  DLEP
   defines a base set of mechanisms as well as support for possible
   extensions.  This document defines one such extension.

   Some modem technologies support connectivity to destinations via
   multi-hop forwarding.  DLEP Destination messages can be used to
   report such connectivity, see [RFC8175], but do not provide any
   information related to the number or capacity of the hops.  The
   extension defined in this document enables modems to inform routers
   when multi-hop forwarding is being used, and routers to request that
   modems change multi-hop forwarding behavior.  The extension defined
   in this document is referred to as "Multi-Hop Forwarding".

   This document defines a new DLEP Extension Type Value in Section 2
   which is used to indicate the use of the extension, and three new
   DLEP Data Items in Section 3.
