Technical Summary

   This document defines an optional, transitive BGP attribute for
   announcing BGP Prefix Segment Identifiers (BGP Prefix-SID)

Working Group Summary

   WG consensus is strong.

   This document already went through IESG Evaluation.  After 
   approval, the WG decided to remove the IPv6 SID TLV for lack 
   of implementation, and because there are better proposals on 
   the table.  IOW, IPv6 is not being ignored -- it is just being moved 
   to another document.  The document went back to the WG for 
   discussion, an updated WGLC, and then again through IETF LC.
