This document proposes a multicast protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc networks,
called the Multicast routing protocol based on Zone Routing (MZR). MZR
is a source-initiated on-demand protocol, in which a multicast delivery
tree is created using a concept based on the zone routing mechanism.
It belongs to the family of source-tree-based protocols, in which a
delivery tree rooted at the source is created for each active multicast
session. MZR does not depend on any underlying unicast protocol for a
global routing substructure. The protocol's reaction to topological
changes is restricted to a node's neighborhood and is not propagated
throughout the network.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
