   TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) active-active
   service provides end stations with flow level load balance and
   resilience against link failures at the edge of TRILL campuses as
   described in RFC 7379.

   This draft specifies a method by which member RBridges in an active-
   active edge RBridge group use their own nicknames as ingress RBridge
   nicknames to encapsulate frames from attached end systems. Thus,
   remote edge RBridges (who are not in the group) will see one host MAC
   address being associated with the multiple RBridges in the group.
   Such remote edge RBridges are required to maintain all those
   associations (i.e., MAC attachments) and to not flip-flop among them
   which would be the behavior prior to this specification. Design goals
   of this specification are discussed in the document.
