Comment (2004-02-04)
I found the initial definition of starting vs. restarting to be a bit opaque:

 The terms "start/starting" are used to refer to a router in which 
   the control function has either been started for the first time or 
   has been restarted but the forwarding functions have not been 
   maintained in a prior state. 

   The terms "(re)start/(re)starting" are used when the text is 
   applicable to both a "starting" and a "restarting" router. 

I think replacing the words started and restarted above where they
are not in quotations marks would help.  Though there is no functional
difference for this spec between "started for the first time" and "restarted
without maintaing forwarding state", having different words for them
(rather than "starting") would also help.  This may, however, be my
idiosyncratic reaction, so don't bother with a change unless others agree.

Nit:          Restarting 

   In order to avoid causing unnecessary routing churn in other 
   routers, it is highly desirable that the own LSPs generated by the 
"that the own LSPs" looks wrong to me--should own be dropped?
