         Updates to the IPv6 Multicast Addressing Architecture
             draft-ietf-6man-multicast-addr-arch-update-07

Abstract

   This document updates the IPv6 multicast addressing architecture by
   re-defining the reserved bits as generic flag bits.  The document
   provides also some clarifications related to the use of these flag
   bits.

   This document updates RFC 3956, RFC 3306 and RFC 4291.

Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].
