Technical Summary
 
  This is a relatively small update to RFC3946. RFC3946 specifies GMPLS
  extensions for supporting SONET and SDH, and as such is a companion to
  the GMPLS specification (RFC3945). 
 
Working Group Summary
 
  The WG chairs reported "Good consensus", with no controversy. 
 
Protocol Quality
 
  I (Ross Callon) reviewed the changes from 3946 in detail. This is a
  pretty small but worthwhile improvement to an existing RFC. 

Note to RFC Editor
 
  This of course will obsolete 3946. 

  There is a small change needed in the first sentence of the IANA
  Considerations:

OLD:
  Three values have been defined by IANA for this document. 

NEW: 
  Three values defined by IANA for RFC 3946 now apply to this document.

IANA Note

  This should not cause any IANA-specific change from the existing 3946.
  The three values that have been defined by IANA for RFC3946 now apply
  to this document.
