   BIER is a multicast forwarding architecture that does not require
   per-flow state inside the network yet still provides optimal
   replication.  This document describes how the existing BIER
   encapsulation specified in RFC8296 works in a non-MPLS IPv6 network,
   which is 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.
