   The Internet needs to support IPv4 and IPv6 packets.  Both address
   families and their related protocol suites support multicast of the
   single-source and any-source varieties.  During IPv6 transition,
   there will be scenarios where a backbone network running one IP
   address family internally (referred to as internal IP or I-IP) will
   provide transit services to attached client networks running another
   IP address family (referred to as external IP or E-IP).  It is
   expected that the I-IP backbone will offer unicast and multicast
   transit services to the client E-IP networks.

   Softwire Mesh is a solution to E-IP unicast and multicast support
   across an I-IP backbone.  This document describes the mechanism for
   supporting Internet-style multicast across a set of E-IP and I-IP
   networks supporting softwire mesh.
