1.  Introduction

   Bit Index Explicit Replication (BIER) [RFC8279] defines an
   architecture where all intended multicast receivers are encoded as
   bitmask in the Multicast packet header within different
   encapsulations such as [RFC8296].  A router that receives such a
   packet will forward the packet based on the Bit Position in the
   packet header towards the receiver(s), following a precomputed tree
   for each of the bits in the packet.  Each receiver is represented by
   a unique bit in the bitmask.
