As the size of the routing table in the Internet grows, there is a 
need for routing protocols to reduce the control information and 
also improve time taken for route convergence. In this draft we 
propose a new capability in Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to 
reduce the size of the UPDATE message when the same path 
attributes are used for consecutive UPDATE messages. This allows 
more number of routes to be sent in a single UPDATE message and 
also reduces extraction processing in the receiving router.

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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
