Technical Summary

   This draft defines protocol extensions required to synchronize flow
   label states among PEs when using the BGP-based signaling procedures.
   These protocol extensions are equally applicable to point-to-point
   Layer2 Virtual Private Networks (L2VPNs). This draft updates RFC 4761
   by defining new flags in the Control Flags field of the Layer2 Info
   Extended Community.
