Title : Explicit Multicast over Mobile IP (XMIP)

As a special kind of Internet multicast, Explicit
multicast(Xcast) encodes destination addresses of all the
receivers into the packet. Not requiring membership management and
routing information exchange in the intermediate routers in
contrast to the legacy Internet multicast or Deering multicast,
Xcast can effectively provide multicast service to Internet without
those overheads. A node mobility supporting protocol, Mobile
IP[2,3], requires to be modified to appropriately intercept, route
and forward Xcast packets. This document specifies the protocol
operations for the mobile agent, the mobile node and the
correspondent node to support transmission and reception of Xcast
datagram over Mobile IPv4 and Mobile IPv6.

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
