This specification allows Anycast-RP (Rendezvous Point) to be used
inside a domain that runs Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) only.
Other multicast protocols (such as Multicast Source Discovery
Protocol (MSDP), which has been used traditionally to solve this
problem) are not required to support Anycast-RP.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
