RANGER is an architectural framework for scalable routing and
addressing in networks with global enterprise recursion.  The term
"enterprise network" within this context extends to a wide variety of
use cases and deployment scenarios, where an "enterprise" can be as
small as a Small Office, Home Office (SOHO) network, as dynamic as a
Mobile Ad Hoc Network, as complex as a multi-organizational
corporation, or as large as the global Internet itself.  Such networks
will require an architected solution for the coordination of routing
and addressing plans with accommodations for scalability,
provider-independence, mobility, multihoming, and security.  These
considerations are particularly true for existing deployments, but the
same principles apply even for clean-slate approaches.  The RANGER
architecture addresses these requirements and provides a comprehensive
framework for IPv6/IPv4 coexistence.  This document is not an Internet
