   In PIM-SM networks PIM Register messages are sent by the Designated
   Router (DR) to the Rendezvous Point (RP) to signal the presence of
   Multicast sources in the network.  There are periodic PIM Null-
   Registers sent from the DR to the RP to keep the state alive at the
   RP as long as the source is active.  The PIM Null-Register message
   carries information about a single Multicast source and group.

   This document defines a standard to send multiple multicast source
   and group information in a single PIM Null-Register message, in a
   packed format.  This document also discusses the interoperability
   between the PIM routers which do not understand the packed message
   format with multiple multicast source and group details.
