Technical Summary

This document describes a Service Selection extension for both
conventional Mobile IPv4 and Proxy Mobile IPv4 that is intended to assist
home agents to make a specific service selection for the mobility service
subscription during the binding update procedure. The service selection
may affect home agent routing decisions, Qos and policy treatment of
service related IP flows in the home agent and also Home Address
assignment policies.

the decision of adoption as a WG work item got postponed due time schedule
challenges with the current MIP4 WG charter and dependencies with external
Standardization Development Organizations.
