Mobile IP is designed to provide IP services to roaming nodes, 
allowing them access to services, and enabling other nodes to reach 
them, as if they were on their home domain.  By definition this 
functionality must be deployed on multiple subnets, and in many 
cases across domains, and while Mobile IP services MUST be present
on a subnet in order for a mobile node to have this reachability,
deploying Mobile IP can introduce some security issues which may
need to be addressed, but which certainly should be understood by
any network administrator overseeing Mobile IP subnets.

	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with

	how to manipulate these messages.
