My apologies for the late review of this document.

Summary: Ready with nits

Minor (but some of these might be more serious):

In 6.2.2:

If an implementation of BGP-LS detects a malformed attribute, then it
   SHOULD use the ’Attribute Discard’ action as per
   [I-D.ietf-idr-error-handling] Section 2.

This needs to be a Normative reference. Or you can keep it as 

Informative, if you change the sentence not to use RFC 2119 language.

In - does this need a new IANA registry? (I am fine if you think 

you don't).

In - what is "subset of the FQDN"?


      The TE Default Metric TLV carries the TE-metric for this link.
      The length of this TLV is fixed at 4 octets.

I am probably showing my ignorance, but is the term "TE-metric" defined 

somewhere? The description below suggests it has substructure, which I 

don't know anything about.

       If a source protocol (e.g.
       IS-IS) does not support a Metric width of 32 bits then the high
       order octet MUST be set to zero.

Best Regards,
