[RFC5302] defines the route preference rules as they apply to TLVs 128 and 130. [RFC5305] introduced the IP Extended Reachability TLV 135 but did not explicitly adapt the route preference rules defined in [RFC5302] for the new TLV. [RFC5308] defines the IPv6 Reachability TLV 236 and does include an explicit statement regarding route preference -- but the statement introduces use of the up/down bit in advertisements that appear in Level 2 LSPs, which is inconsistent with statements made in [RFC5302] and [RFC5305]. This document defines explicit route preference rules for TLV 135, revises the route preference rules for TLV 236, and clarifies the usage of the up/down bit when it appears in TLVs in Level 2 LSPs. This document is a clarification (NOT a correction) of [RFC5302] and [RFC5305]; it is a correction of the route preference rules defined in [RFC5308] to be consistent with the rules for IPv4. It also makes explicit that the same rules apply to the Multi-Topology (MT) equivalent TLVs 235 and 237.

IS-IS Route Preference for Extended IP and IPv6 Reachability
In existing specifications, the route preferences for IPv4/IPv6 Extended Reachability TLVs are not explicitly stated. There are also inconsistencies in the definition of how the up/down bit applies to route preference when the prefix advertisement appears in Level 2 Link State Protocol Data Units (LSPs). This document addresses these issues.
This document updates RFC 5308.
