This specification defines the Entropy Label Capability Attribute version 3 (ELCv3), a BGP attribute that can be used to inform an LSP ingress router about an LSP egress router's ability to process entropy labels. This version of the attribute corrects a specification error in the first version, and an improper code point reuse in the second.
