   BIER is a new architecture for the forwarding of multicast data
   packets without requiring per-flow state inside the network.  This
   document describes how the existing BIER encapsulation specified in
   RFC 8296 works in an IPv6 non-MPLS network, referred to as BIERin6.
   Specifically, like in an IPv4 network, BIER can work over L2 links
   directly or over tunnels.  In case of IPv6 tunneling, a new IP "Next
   Header" type is to be assigned for BIER.
