In some Mobile IPv4 deployments, identifying the mobile node or the
mobility service subscriber is not enough to distinguish among the
multiple services possibly provisioned to the mobile node.  The
capability to specify different services in addition to the mobile
node's identity can be leveraged to provide flexibility for mobility
service providers to provide multiple services within a single
mobility service subscription.  This document describes a Service
Selection extension for Mobile IPv4 that is intended to assist home
agents to make specific service selections for their mobility service
subscriptions during the registration procedure.  This memo provides
