Technical Summary

    This document describes lightweight IGMPv3 and MLDv2 protocols (LW-
    IGMPv3 and LW-MLDv2), which simplify the standard (full) versions of
    IGMPv3 and MLDv2.  The interoperability with the full versions and
    the previous versions of IGMP and MLD is also taken into account.

From the second para of the Introduction:

   INCLUDE and EXCLUDE filter-modes are introduced to support the source
   filtering function.

"are introduced" by IGMPv3 and/or MLDv2, or ???

  The Gen-ART Review by Brian Carpenter on 2009-09-01 raises a question
  about this text:

  > 1.  Introduction
  ...
  >   Since LW-IGMPv3 and LW-MLDv2 are fully compatible with the full
  >   version of these protocols (i.e., the standard IGMPv3 and MLDv2),
  >   hosts or routers that have implemented the full version do not need
  >   to implement or modify anything to cooperate with LW-IGMPv3/LW-MLDv2
  >   hosts or routers.
  
  I assume this also means that LW-IGMPv3 and LW-MLDv2 are strict subsets
  of IGMPv3 and MLDv2. If so, it would be useful to say so explicitly.

I support the other DISCUSSes that raise the issue that a better status for this document would be PS.
