1.  Introduction

   [I-D.ietf-bier-architecture] introduces and explains Bit Index
   Explicit Replication (BIER) architecture and how it supports
   forwarding of multicast data packets.

   This document lists the OAM requirements for BIER layer of multicast
   domain.  The list can further be used to for gap analysis of
   available OAM tools to identify possible enhancements of existing or
   whether new OAM tools are required to support proactive and on-demand
   path monitoring and service validation.
