Hi all,

   the following changes have been made from 

   1.  Added preparations for IRSG review
   2.  Fixed error codes
   3.  Editorial improvements
   4.  Updated references

  The boiler plate will changed later by the RFC editor.

  The document is ready for IRSG review.

   Group communication services exist in a large variety of flavors, and
   technical implementations at different protocol layers.  Multicast
   data distribution is most efficiently performed on the lowest
   available layer, but a heterogeneous deployment status of multicast
   technologies throughout the Internet requires an adaptive service
   binding at runtime.  Today, it is difficult to write an application
   that runs everywhere and at the same time makes use of the most
   efficient multicast service available in the network.  Facing
   robustness requirements, developers are frequently forced to use a
   stable, upper layer protocol provided by the application itself.
   This document describes a common multicast API that is suitable for
   transparent communication in underlay and overlay, and grants access
   to the different multicast flavors.  It proposes an abstract naming
   by multicast URIs and discusses mapping mechanisms between different
   namespaces and distribution technologies.  Additionally, it describes
   the application of this API for building gateways that interconnect
   current multicast domains throughout the Internet, and reports on an
   implementation of the programming interface including a service
   middleware.  This document is a product of the Scalable Adaptive
   Multicast Research Group (SAM) Research Group.
