[RFC6089] allows a mobile node (MN) to bind a particular flow to a care-of address (CoA) without affecting other flows using the same home address. BU/BA (Binding Update / Binding Acknowledgement) messages are extended for the mobile node to add, delete, modify, move, refresh, and revoke flow bindings in a home agent (HA). The operations are always initiated by the mobile node.

          Flow Bindings Initiated by Home Agents for Mobile IPv6


   There are scenarios in which the home agent needs to trigger flow    binding operations towards the mobile node, such as moving a flow    from one access network to another based on network resource    availability.  In order for the home agent to be able to initiate    interactions for flow bindings with the mobile node, this document    defines new signaling messages and sub-options for Mobile IPv6.  Flow    bindings initiated by a home agent are supported for mobile nodes    enabled by both IPv4 and IPv6.
