This document describes a mechanism for supporting multiple address
families (AFs) in OSPFv3 using multiple instances.  It maps an AF to
an OSPFv3 instance using the Instance ID field in the OSPFv3 packet
header.  This approach is fairly simple and minimizes extensions to
OSPFv3 for supporting multiple AFs.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
