Technical Summary

 The "Typed Wildcard Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC) Element" 
 defines an extension to the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) that 
 can be used when it is desired to request or withdraw or release all 
 label bindings for a given FEC Element type.  However, a typed 
 wildcard FEC element must be individually defined for each FEC 
 element type.  This specification defines the typed wildcard FEC 
 elements for the PWid (0x80) and Generalized PWid (0x81) FEC element 
 types.
