Yes. In particular, the shen draft can be used with TE tunnels as the
backup paths. This offers a solution in which TE is only involved in
the failure case, which could be much more attractive to customers who
don't want to deal with *all* of their traffic riding on tunnels.
So a complete solution is available in the MPLS WG. Note that the
