This specification defines the behavior required of Diameter agents
to route requests when the User-Name Attribute Value Pair contains a
Network Access Identifier formatted with multiple realms.  These
multi-realm, or "Decorated", Network Access Identifiers are used in
order to force the routing of request messages through a predefined
list of mediating realms.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
