Technical Summary
 This document presents a set of requirements for the establishment
 and maintenance of Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) Traffic Engineered (TE)
 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Paths (LSPs).
 There is no intent to specify solution specific details nor
 application specific requirements in this document.
 The requirements presented in this document are
 not limited to the requirements of packet switched networks, but also
 encompass the requirements of Layer two Switching (L2SC), Time
 Division Multiplexing (TDM), lambda and port switching networks
 managed by Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) protocols. Protocol solutions
 developed to meet the requirements set out in this document must
 attempt to be equally applicable to MPLS and GMPLS.

Working Group Summary
 There was consensus within the WG to progress this document.
Protocol Quality
 The document has been reviewed for the IESG by Alex Zinin.
