Technical Summary

   This memo describes an extension to Generalized Multi-Protocol
   Label Switching signaling that enables the transfer of connection
   ownership between the Management and the Control Planes. Such a
   transfer is referred to as a Handover. This document defines all
   Handover related procedures. This includes the handling of failure
   conditions and subsequent rversion to original state. A basic
   premise of the extension is that the handover procedures must never
   impact an already established data plane.
