Technical Summary

  This document defines additional Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol Version
  3 (L2TPv3) bit values to be used within the "Circuit Status"
  Attribute Value Pair (AVP) to communicate more granular error states
  for circuits and pseudowires.

  It also generalizes the "Active" bit and deprecates the use of the
  "New" bit in the "Circuit Status" AVP, updating RFC3931, RFC4349,
  RFC4454, RFC4591, and RFC4719.
