This document describes deployment options for activating multicast
listener functions in Proxy Mobile IPv6 domains without modifying
mobility and multicast protocol standards.  Similar to home agents in
Mobile IPv6, Local Mobility Anchors of Proxy Mobile IPv6 serve as
multicast subscription anchor points, while Mobile Access Gateways
provide Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) proxy functions.  In this
scenario, mobile nodes remain agnostic of multicast mobility
operations.  Support for mobile multicast senders is outside the
scope of this document.  This document is not an Internet Standards 
Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.

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