This document describes a number of mechanisms that can be used to
reduce processing overhead requirements of refresh messages, eliminate
the state synchronization latency incurred when an RSVP (Resource
ReserVation Protocol) message is lost and, when desired, refreshing
state without the transmission of whole refresh messages.  The same
extensions also support reliable RSVP message delivery on a per hop
basis.  These extension present no backwards compatibility issues.

This document is a prodcut of the Resource Reservation Setup Protocol
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
