This document specifies a new extension for use by Foreign Agents
operating Mobile IP for IPv4.  Currently, a foreign agent cannot
supply status information without destroying the ability for a mobile
node to verify authentication data supplied by the home agent.  The
new extension solves this problem by making a better place for the
foreign agent to provide its status information to the mobile node.
