Infested with undefined acronyms. Is there a reference for these acronyms?

Broken reference in section 2: BGP L2VPNs [?] . Let's hope this isn't normative.

More on acronyms from Gen-ART review by John Loughney:

1) Abstract full of acronyms, please expand.
2) Desperately needs a terminology section, as some of the terminology
is quite specific to VPN technology.

I'd recommend a document revision with the above 2 points addressed.
