This document presents the source-address-dependent routing (SADR)
problem space from the host's perspective.  Both multihomed hosts and
hosts with multiple interfaces are considered.  Several network
architectures are presented to illustrate why source address
selection and next-hop resolution are needed in view of
source-address-dependent routing.

The document is scoped on identifying a set of scenarios for
source-address-dependent routing from the host's perspective and
analyzing a set of solutions to mitigate encountered issues.  The
document does not make any solution recommendations.
