Final Charter for Working Group

First, this BoF is not necessarily intended to result in a new
working group. Rather, the intention is to stimulate some new thinking
around the IPv4 Multicast Address Architecture and Allocation problem
(s). Specifically, allocation architectures, the causes for the land
grab (e.g., no lightweight service discovery protocol), and to clean
up the various older allocation strategies that, while documented in
various RFCs, have never been widely deployed on the public Internet.
