Section 11.2 of RFC 6513 ("Partitioned Sets of PEs") describes two methods of carrying Bidirectional PIM (BIDIR-PIM) [RFC5015] C-flow traffic over a provider core without using the core as the Rendezvous Point Link (RPL) or requiring Designated Forwarder election.

Simulating Partial Mesh of Multipoint-to-Multipoint (MP2MP) Provider Tunnels with Ingress Replication
RFC 6513 ("Multicast in MPLS/BGP IP VPNs") describes a method to support bidirectional customer multicast flows using a partial mesh of Multipoint-to-Multipoint (MP2MP) tunnels. This document specifies how a partial mesh of MP2MP tunnels can be simulated using Ingress Replication. This solution enables a service provider to use Ingress Replication to offer transparent bidirectional multicast service to its VPN customers.
