Recent work on MPLS Network Actions (MNA) has produced two drafts that propose to redefine the MPLS Entropy Label Indicator (ELI) for use with MNA. [I-D.jags-mpls-ext-hdr] [I-D.gandhi-mpls-ioam] This work also proposes the use of a Network Programming Label (NPL) as another option for use with MNA. This document considers both of these options harmful in the sense of [GOTO].
