Gateway-Initiated Dual-Stack Lite (GI-DS-Lite) is a variant of Dual-
Stack Lite (DS-Lite) applicable to certain tunnel-based access
architectures.  GI-DS-Lite extends existing access tunnels beyond the
access gateway to an IPv4-IPv4 NAT using softwires with an embedded
Context Identifier that uniquely identifies the end-system to which
the tunneled packets belong.  The access gateway determines which
portion of the traffic requires NAT using local policies and sends/
receives this portion to/from this softwire.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
