The "Typed Wildcard Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC) Element" defines an extension to the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) that can be used when it is desired to request or withdraw or release all label bindings for a given FEC Element type. However, a typed wildcard FEC element must be individually defined for each FEC element type. This specification defines the typed wildcard FEC elements for the PWid (0x80), Generalized PWid (0x81), and P2MP PW (0x82) FEC element types.
