HI Fred,

I'm in the process of the next update, and wanted to clarify the following:

That section doesn't list examples of multipoint tunnels per se. It
lists systems that use multipoint tunnels (LISP, TRILL) and discusses
mechanisms that support multipoint tunnels (LANE, etc.).

I'm not sure there's a clearly good, original ref for multipoint tunnels
- the concept has been around in some form since basically the notion of
a tunnel.
