This document describes a home agent-assisted route optimization
functionality for the IPv4 Network Mobility Protocol.  The function
is designed to facilitate optimal routing in cases where all nodes
are connected to a single home agent; thus, the use case is route
optimization within a single organization or similar entity.  The
functionality enables the discovery of eligible peer nodes (based on
information received from the home agent) and their network prefixes,
and the establishment of a direct tunnel between such nodes.
