Technical Summary

This document introduces a simple mechanism to associate a group of
Label Switched Paths (LSPs) via an extension to the Path Computation
Element (PCE) Communication Protocol (PCEP) with the purpose of
computing diverse paths for those LSPs.  The proposed extension
allows a Path Computation Client (PCC) to advertise to a PCE that a
particular LSP belongs to a disjoint-group, thus the PCE knows that
LSPs in the same group need to be disjoint from each other.
