I have been selected as the Routing Directorate reviewer for this draft. The
Routing Directorate seeks to review all routing or routing-related drafts as
they pass through IETF last call and IESG review, and sometimes on special
request. The purpose of the review is to provide assistance to the Routing ADs.
For more information about the Routing Directorate, please see

Although these comments are primarily for the use of the Routing ADs, it would
be helpful if you could consider them along with any other IETF Last Call
comments that you receive, and strive to resolve them through discussion or by
updating the draft.

Section 4


         This field indicates whether the sender is (a) able to receive
         multiple paths from its peer (value 1), (b) able to send
         multiple paths to its peer (value 2), or (c) both (value 3) for
         the <AFI, SAFI>."

How about other values and what's the process when received value other than 1,
2 and 3?

Section 5

   UPDATE message for a particular <AFI, SAFI> to a peer unless the BGP..."

"A BGP speaker MUST follow the procedures defined in [RFC4271] in generating an
   UPDATE message for a particular <AFI, SAFI> to a peer unless the BGP..."
