Technical Summary

This document introduces a generic mechanism to create a grouping of
Label Switched Paths (LSPs) in the context of a Path Computation
Element (PCE).  This grouping can then be used to define associations
between sets of LSPs or between a set of LSPs and a set of attributes
(such as configuration parameters or behaviors), and is equally
applicable to the stateful PCE (active and passive modes) as well as
the stateless PCE.

Working Group Summary

The document has consensus and this defines the base specification for upcoming protocol extensions.

Document Quality

Several vendors are co-authors of this document as well as the subsequent ones. Some of them explicitly
confirmed it was implemented. Early codepoint allocation was triggered because of implementations
requirements.
