-> Well said Ping. Yes! I was also wondering, why there is no

-> similar in O&M area for defining IP to MPLS smooth transition.
-> IETF O&M area has lots of working groups moving towards IPv6,
-> which is far ahead in the road when compared to MPLS.
-> (Remember, I am very clear here - I am not asking for MPLS OAM,
-> rather MPLS transition :))
Writing to myself...may be, MPLS is not as much big compared to
IPv6 (in the breadth perspective), if not a separate working group,
some one can initiate a draft for smooth transition for a network
from IP to MPLS (at least for the benefit of the big SPs, future
generations). Hope that is a good idea though!
