Final Charter for Working Group

The LRW (Lightweight Reachability softWires) BOF is to discuss the
problem space of: discovery, control and encapsulation methods for
connecting IPv4 networks across IPv6 networks and IPv6 networks across
IPv4 networks. Due to the fact that some networks are mandated that
certain network functions must be IPv4 or IPv6 (e.g. due to financial
or political reasons); dynamic tunnels or 'softwires' are suited for
the inter-networking job. The goal of the BOF is to form the LRW WG
that will work on these issues.
