This specification defines an extension to the multicast addressing
architecture of the IP Version 4 protocol.  The extension presented
in this document allows for unicast-prefix-based assignment of
multicast addresses.  By delegating multicast addresses at the same
time as unicast prefixes, network operators will be able to identify
their multicast addresses without needing to run an inter-domain
allocation protocol.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
