   This memo describes per-packet stateless strict and loose path
   steered replication and forwarding for Bit Index Explicit Replication
   packets (RFC8279).  It is called BIER Tree Engineering (BIER-TE) and
   is intended to be used as the path steering mechanism for Traffic
   Engineering with BIER.

   BIER-TE introduces a new semantic for bit positions (BP) that
   indicate adjacencies, as opposed to BIER in which BPs indicate Bit-
   Forwarding Egress Routers (BFER).  BIER-TE can leverage BIER
   forwarding engines with little changes.  Co-existence of BIER and
   BIER-TE forwarding in the same domain is possible, for example by
   using separate BIER sub-domains (SDs).  Except for the optional
   routed adjacencies, BIER-TE does not require a BIER routing underlay,
   and can therefore operate without depending on an Interior Gateway
   Routing protocol (IGP).

   As it operates on the same per-packet stateless forwarding
   principles, BIER-TE can also be a good fit to support multicast path
   steering in Segment Routing (SR) networks.
