Final Charter for Working Group

Successful content distribution business plans have been hampered by
all-or-nothing nature of a multicast routed infrastructure. Several
have arisen over the past few years to address the last-mile multicast
deployment gap, but have all lost momentum for various reasons. Recent
efforts on yet another draft have revealed the need to have all
parties participate in the effort in order to provide a comprehensive
simple and deployable solution.
