In IP multicast all hosts that join a multicast group (*, G) or (S,
G) can receive the multicast traffic. This draft adds possibility to
selectively enable multicast receiving and sending by introducing
Multicast Control Protocol (MCOP). MCOP is used between multicast
control agent (MCA) and routers that have directly connected
multicast sources or receivers. The receiver and source control is
done by MCOP enabled routers based on the information received from
the MCA. MCOP enabled routers filter IGMP/MLD reports and multicast
packets before they reach the IGMP/MLD processing layer or multicast
routing stack of the router. MCOP is independent of multicast

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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
