This document discusses current mobility extensions to IP-layer
multicast.  It describes problems arising from mobile group
communication in general, the case of multicast listener mobility,
and problems for mobile senders using Any Source Multicast and 
Source-Specific Multicast.  Characteristic aspects of multicast 
routing and deployment issues for fixed IPv6 networks are summarized.
Specific properties and interplays with the underlying network access are 
surveyed with respect to the relevant technologies in the wireless 
domain.  It outlines the principal approaches to multicast mobility, 
together with a comprehensive exploration of the mobile multicast 
problem and solution space.  This document concludes with a conceptual 
road map for initial steps in standardization for use by future mobile
multicast protocol designers.  This document is a product of the IP
Mobility Optimizations (MobOpts) Research Group.  This document is not an
