Technical Summary

The currently defined PIM version 2 messages share a common message
header format. The common header definition contains eight reserved
bits. This document specifies how these bits may be used by
individual message types, and creates a registry containing the per
message type usage. This document also extends the PIM type space by
defining three new message types.

Working Group Summary

There was very thorough review by several WG members. There were a few
comments and all were addressed to the wg's satisfaction.

Document Quality

Not really applicable here as its updating a registry
