See, it is interesting to see how what one assumes to be a well 
established basis turns out not to be so. It goes right to my point about 
the time that gets wasted on discussing details when sometimes the 
misunderstanding is at a completely different level.

The  "Conformance" section of the LDP spec (section 3) currently defines 
what "A conforming LDP Server" is and what "A conforming LDP Client" are. 
So, if you don't think LDP describes servers we have a problem right there 
and we may as well not try and discuss anything further until we clarify 
that very point.
