Title : Multi-link Subnet Support in IPv6

Bridging multiple links into a single entity has several
operational advantages. A single subnet prefix is sufficient to
support multiple physical links. There is no need to allocate
subnet numbers to the different networks, simplifying management.
This document introduces the concept of a 'multilink subnet',
defined as a collection of independent links, connected by
routers, but sharing a common subnet prefix. It then specifies
the behavior of multilink subnet routers so that no changes to
host behavior are needed.

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.
