1.  Introduction

   OSPF and IS-IS have the summary route and default route mechanism on
   area border router or L1L2 border router, which is used to increase
   the scalability of these IGP protocols.  Such summary mechanism can
   also reduce the SPF calculation time when the link oscillation occurs
   in another area.

   The summary route and the default route may cover the host route or
   link prefixes of intra area or inter area.  But in some situations,
   the router needs to know the exact reachability information about
   prefix in other area, especially when the prefix is unreachable but
   it is located within the summary range.

   With the introduction of SRv6, more and more services are migrated
   from the MPLS data plane to the IPv6 data plane.  The biggest
   difference between IPv6 and MPLS is that IPv6 has aggregation
   ability, so we need to reconsider how to know the prefix reachability
   in the case of aggregation.

   This document introduces the mechanism that can be used in such
   situation, to announce the unreachable prefixes which are located in
   the summary address range.
