This document defines a mechanism for statically allocating IPv6 multicast addresses by network prefixes. This approach will integrate seamlessly with the Multicast Address Dynamic Client Allocation Protocol (MADCAP). It will also remove the need to support the Multicast Address Set Claim (MASC) Protocol for IPv6.
