This document specifies a point-to-point route discovery mechanism,
complementary to the Routing Protocol for Low-power and Lossy
Networks (RPL) core functionality.  This mechanism allows an IPv6
router to discover "on demand" routes to one or more IPv6 routers in
a Low-power and Lossy Network (LLN) such that the discovered routes
meet specified metrics constraints.

This document is a product of the Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks Working Group of the IETF.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
Internet community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any
kind. Discussion and suggestions for improvement are requested.
