Document: draft-ietf-mpls-extended-admin-group-05
    Extended Administrative Groups in MPLS-TE

Summary: This document is ready for publication as a Proposed Standards RFC

Major issues: N/A

Minor issues:

    I believe that the description of when to use this EAG is slightly 

misleading.  The text says that EAG is to be used "when a node wishes to 

advertise more than 32 colors for a link."  I believe it is more 

accurate to say that it is to be used "when a node wishes to advertise 

colors for a link which are not represented in the first 32 bits of the 

color mask."  The node may only wish to advertise colors 7 and 60, but 

that will require the EAG.

Nits/editorial comments: N/A
