This document describes issues encountered by a node attached to
multiple provisioning domains.  This node receives configuration
information from each of its provisioning domains, where some
configuration objects are global to the node and others are local to
the interface.  Issues such as selecting the wrong interface to send
traffic happen when conflicting node-scoped configuration objects are
received and inappropriately used.  Moreover, other issues are the
result of simultaneous attachment to multiple networks, such as
domain selection or addressing and naming space overlaps, regardless
of the provisioning mechanism.  While multiple provisioning domains
are typically seen on nodes with multiple interfaces, this document
also discusses situations involving single-interface nodes.
