PIM Join attributes as defined in [RFC5384] allow for specifying a set of attributes for each of the joined or pruned sources in a PIM Join/Prune message. Attributes must be separately specified for each individual source in the message. However, in some cases, the same attributes and values need to be specified for some, or even all, the sources in the message. The attributes and their values then need to be repeated for each of the sources where they apply.

Hierarchical Join/Prune Attributes
This document defines a hierarchical method of encoding Join/Prune attributes that provides a more efficient encoding when the same attribute values need to be specified for multiple sources in a PIM Join/Prune message. This document updates RFC 5384 by renaming the encoding type registry specified there.
