   TRILL supports multi-access LAN (Local Area Network) links where a
   single link can have multiple end stations and TRILL switches
   attached.  Where multiple TRILL switches are attached to a link,
   native traffic to and from end stations on that link is handled by a
   subset of those TRILL switches called "Appointed Forwarders", with
   the intent that native traffic in each VLAN be handled by at most one
   TRILL switch.  This document clarifies and updates the Appointed
   Forwarder mechanism. It updates RFC 6325, updates RFC 7177, and
   obsoletes RFC 6439.
