                  Application-Layer Multicast Extensions               to REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD)


   We define a REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD) Usage for    Application-Layer Multicast (ALM) as well as a mapping to the RELOAD    experimental message type to support ALM.  The ALM Usage is intended    to support a variety of ALM control algorithms in an overlay-    independent way.  Two example algorithms are defined, based on Scribe    and P2PCast.
