This document discusses the issues associated with mobility
management for dual stack mobile nodes.  Currently, two mobility
management protocols are defined for IPv4 and IPv6.  Deploying both
in a dual stack mobile node introduces a number of problems.
Deployment and operational issues motivate the use of a single
mobility management protocol.  This document discusses such
motivations.  The document also discusses requirements for the Mobile
IPv4 (MIPv4) and Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) protocol so that they can
support mobility management for a dual stack node.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Mobility for IPv6
Working Group of the IETF.
