Technical Summary

   Multi-Topology Routing (MTR) is a technology to enable service
   differentiation within an IP network.  Flexible Algorithm (FA) is
   another mechanism of creating a sub-topology within a topology using
   defined topology constraints and computation algorithm.  In order to
   deploy mLDP (Multipoint label distribution protocol) in a network
   that supports MTR and/or FA, mLDP is required to become topology and
   FA aware.  This document specifies extensions to mLDP to support MTR
   with FA such that when building a Multipoint LSPs(Label Switched
   Paths) it can follow a particular topology and algorithm.
