Ballot Text

Technical Summary

This document describes how to use network performance data, such as
is advertised via the OSPF and ISIS TE metric extensions (defined in
other RFCs) to perform path selection based on network performance

Working Group Summary

This document moved from to the TEAS WGs as part of the routing WG
changes.  This document has been fairly noncontroversial 

Document Quality

 The extensions defined in this document are compatible with earlier
implementations.  While there have been no public statements on
implementation, the authors are from multiple vendors, and
implementation is expected - or may even already exist.
