Technical Summary

   A multihomed host receives node configuration information from each
   of its provisioning domains. Some configuration objects are global to
   the node, some are local to the interface. Various issues arise when
   multiple conflicting node-scoped configuration objects are received
   on multiple interfaces. Similar situations also happen with single
   interface host connected to multiple networks. This document
   describes these issues.

   There is a consensus in the MIF WG for publication as an
   informational RFC.

Document Quality

   The document has gone through various reviews and a successful WGLC.


   Responsible AD is Jari Arkko and the document shepherd is Hui Deng.
