Technical Summary

This specification defines the behavior required of Diameter agents
to route requests when the User-Name Attribute Value Pair contains a
Network Access Identifier formatted with multiple realms. These
multi-realm or "Decorated" Network Access Identifiers are used in
order to force the routing of request messages through a predefined
list of mediating realms.

Working Group Summary

The document fixes a small technical aspect and hence it sailed
smoothly through the DIME group.

Document Quality

This document is the product of the DIME working group.
The current implementation status of this specification is, however,
unknown. Implementations are expected to arrive to arrive when larger
Diameter deployments utilize the RFC 4282 based NAI format.

Personnel

Hannes Tschofenig is the document shepherd for this document.
Dan Romascanu is the responsible AD.
