Internet Draft: Multicast in MPLS/BGP IP VPNs

Another very interesting Internet Draft was posted today:

In todays MPLS VPN networks, multicast isn't natively supported, but there are some duct-tape workarounds to get it to work (MDT with GRE). Finally a more permanent solution is coming, albeit at the cost of some pretty complex functionality (luckily only in the SP network).

A bit of a long read, but there is some interesting info contained within if you can keep up with the theory.
