Technical Summary

   This draft discusses some existing commonly-used BGP mechanisms for
   ASN migration that are not formally part of the BGP4 protocol
   specification.  It is necessary to document these de facto standards
   to ensure that they are properly supported in future BGP protocol
   work.


Working Group Summary

  Good Working Group Consensus occurred during WG Review. 


Document Quality

 Implementations and deployments already exist -- that was what prompted this document.  
 A significant number of vendors have shipping implementations.  The WG, and vendors specifically
