This document reviews the MPLS protocol suite in the context of IPv6 and identifies gaps that must be addressed in order to allow MPLS- related protocols and applications to be used with IPv6-only networks. This document is not intended to highlight a particular vendor's implementation (or lack thereof) in the context of IPv6-only MPLS functionality, but rather to focus on gaps in the standards defining the MPLS suite.
