[RFC4364] specifies the set of procedures that a Service Provider (SP) must implement in order to provide a particular kind of VPN service ("BGP/MPLS IP VPN") for its customers. The service described therein allows IP unicast packets to travel from one customer site to another, but it does not provide a way for IP multicast traffic to travel from one customer site to another.
