Technical Summary

   The Softwire mesh framework is a tunneling mechanism that enables
   the connectivity between islands of IPv4 networks across a single
   IPv6 backbone and vice versa.  In softwire mesh, extended
   multiprotocol-BGP (MP-BGP)is used to set up tunnels and advertise
   prefixes among address family border routers (AFBRs).  The softwire
   mesh MIB provides a method to configure and manage the softwire
   mesh objects through SNMP.

version -03 did not contain any remarks about these warnings and I am
assuming this warning are benign. I just wanted to provide a heads
up to the OPS ADs.
