	Title		: Fault Notification Protocol for GMPLS-Based Recovery

This draft presents a fault notification protocol that is 
implementation-agnostic to be used in a GMPLS-based failure recovery 
scheme.  The protocol achieves bounded recovery path activation times 
in the event of single resource failures. This is done by allowing 
for the computation of constrained recovery paths that take into 
account the physical capabilities of the nodes as well as the delay 
characteristics of the control plane.  We propose using a flooding 
protocol for fault notification to allow for per-failure notification 
and to speed up the recovery process, and justify choices made for 
the notification method and for the extensions required to current
