Ballot Text

Technical Summary

        This document adds new flooding scopes to IS-IS using new PDUs (protocol
        data units). Additionally extra advertising space is added for existing
        and new flooding scopes as well as extending TLV type and length to
        allow 16 bit values. These extensions are not backward compatible.

Working Group Summary

        There was no controversy in the WG over this draft.
        Strong consensus among a few WG experts.

Document Quality

     Currently one experimental version is known to exist, and one vendor
     known so far with plans to implement.

RFC Editor Note

  In the IANA Considerations section we need to add:
   “This document needs to be added to the list of References for the TLV Codepoints Registry.”
   We also need to add [RFC3563] to the Reference section.
