1.  Introduction

   This specification defines how to exchange destination/source routing
   [I-D.ietf-rtgwg-dst-src-routing] information in IS-IS for IPv6
   [RFC5308][IS-IS] routing environments.  To this extent, a new sub-TLV
   for an IPv6 [RFC8200] Source Prefix is added, and Multi Topology
   Routing [RFC5120] is employed to address compatibility and isolation
   concerns.

   The router MUST implement the Destination/Source Routing mechanism
   described in [I-D.ietf-rtgwg-dst-src-routing].  This implies not
   simply routing "to a destination", but routing "to that destination
   AND from a specified source".  The obvious application is egress
   routing, as required for a multihomed entity with a provider-
   allocated prefix from each of several upstream networks.  Traffic
   within the network could be source/destination routed as well, or
   could be implicitly or explicitly routed from "any prefix", ::/0.
   Other use cases are described in
   [I-D.baker-rtgwg-src-dst-routing-use-cases].  If a FIB contains a
   route to a given destination from one or more prefixes not including
   ::/0, and a given packet destined there that has a source address
   that is in none of them, the packet in effect has no route, just as
   if the destination itself were not in the route table.
