Technical Summary
 
   This document describes the NEMO Basic Support protocol that enables
   mobile networks to attach to different points in the Internet.  The
   protocol is an extension of Mobile IPv6 and allows for session
   continuity for every node in the mobile network as the network moves.
   It also allows every node in the mobile network to be reachable while
   moving around.  The Mobile Router, which connects the network to the
   Internet, runs the NEMO Basic Support protocol with its Home Agent.
   The protocol is designed in such a way that network mobility is
   transparent to the nodes inside the mobile network.

   advance the draft.  There are IPR claims regarding this technology
   from Cisco and Nokia.  The WG is aware of those claims and made
