   Bit Index Explicit Replication (BIER) is an architecture that
   provides optimal multicast forwarding through a "multicast domain",
   without requiring intermediate routers to maintain any per-flow state
   or to engage in an explicit tree-building protocol.  The Multicast
   packet is encapsulated using a BIER Header and transported through an
   MPLS or non-MPLS network.  When MPLS is used as the transport, the
   Bit Indexed Forwarding Table (BIFT) is identified by a MPLS Label.
   When non-MPLS transport is used, the BIFT is identified by a 20bit
   value.  This document describes one way of encoding the 20bit value.
