Technical Summary

The NEMOv4 specification allows a Mobile Router to register a whole
network prefix.  In the base specification, the Mobile Router must be
pre-configured with a home prefix which is sent in the NEMO Registration
Request.  In this document, the possibility of allocating a prefix from
the home network dynamically is allowed.  The use of an all-zeroes
value in the home prefix extension is proposed to indicate a request
for dynamic assignment.
