2.3. Optional BIER sub-domain BSL conversion Sub-TLV 2.3. Flooding scope of BIER Information
The BIER sub-domain BSL conversion Sub-TLV is a Sub-TLV of the BIER
Sub-TLV. This sub-TLV indicates whether the BFR is capable of
imposing a different Bit String Length (BSL) than the one it received
in a BIER encapsulated packet. Such a capability may allow future,
advanced tree types which ensure simple migration procedures from one
BSL to another in a given MT-ID and Sub-domain-ID or prevent stable
blackholes in scenarios where not all routers support the same set of
BSLs in a given MT-ID and Sub-domain-ID.
The BIER sub-domain BSL conversion Sub-TLV is optional and its
absence indicates that the router is NOT capable of imposing
different BSLs but will always forward the packet with the BSL
unchanged. This sub-TLV MAY occur at most once in a given BIER sub-
TLV. If multiple occurrences of this sub-TLV are received in a given
BIER sub-TLV, the BIER sub-TLV MUST be ignored.
The BIER sub-domain BSL conversion Sub-TLV has following format:
0 1 2 3
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
