This document describes extension to the OSPF protocol to eliminate
or reduce periodic flooding of Link State Advertisements in stable 
The current behavior of OSPF requires that all LSAs be refreshed
every 30 minutes regardless of the stability of the network except
for DoNotAge LSAs. This document proposes to generalize the use of 
DoNotAge LSAs so as to reduce protocol traffic in stable topologies.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
