Technical Summary

   RFC 6790 defines the BGP Entropy Label Capability attribute.
   RFC 67890 has a bug: although RFC 6790 mandates that Entropy
   Label-incapable routers must remove the attribute, in practice this
   requirement can't be guaranteed to be fulfilled.  This specification
   deprecates the attribute.  A forthcoming document will propose a
   replacement.

Working Group Summary

  This document is simple and takes an action that is generally agreed
   upon. The working group supports this document, no especially rough 
   points.

Document Quality
