   Well-known issues with multicast have prevented the deployment of
   multicast in 802.11 (wifi) and other local-area wireless
   environments.  This document describes the problems of known
   limitations with wireless (primarily 802.11) Layer-2 multicast.  Also
   described are certain multicast enhancement features that have been
   specified by the IETF, and by IEEE 802, for wireless media, as well
   as some operational choices that can be taken to improve the
   performance of the network.  Finally, some recommendations are
   provided about the usage and combination of these features and
   operational choices.
