Technical Summary

This document updates RFC6822 to allow for the use of multi-topology IS-IS
(RFC5120) extensions within multi-instance IS-IS instances. This was previously
not allowed.

Working Group Summary

Nothing worth noting.  No controversy.  Strong consensus.

Document Quality

Implementations exist and are deployed with the changes. Other implementations
are in the pipeline.  The change to the RFC while technically incompatible is actually already
deployed by vendors and represents a loosening of restrictions only.
