OK. Will be fixed in next revision.

If the MPLS tunnels are LDP based, I do not see a need to specifically touch both node, the node can select automatically the tunnel going to the peer. Even in TE tunnels, there could be some local policy for tunnel selection so the tunnel will be selected automatically. In both cases the MIB will report the selected tunnel.
