      Port Control Protocol (PCP) Extension for Port-Set Allocation


   In some use cases, e.g., Lightweight 4over6, the client may require    not just one port, but a port set.  This document defines an    extension to the Port Control Protocol (PCP) that allows clients to    manipulate a set of ports as a whole.  This is accomplished using a    new MAP option: PORT_SET.
