Technical Summary

   A number of enhancements to the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) 
   have been proposed. Some have been implemented, and some are 
   advancing toward standardization.  It is likely that additional 
   enhancements will be proposed in the future.  At present, LDP has
   no mechanism for advertising such enhancements at LDP session 
   initialization time.  There is also no mechanism to enable and 
   disable enhancements after the session is established. This
   document defines a mechanism for advertising LDP enhancements at
   session initialization time, as well as a mechanism to enable and
   disable enhancements after LDP session establishment.
