DS-Lite [RFC6333] is an IPv4 address-sharing technique that enables operators to multiplex public IPv4 addresses while provisioning only IPv6 to users. A typical DS-Lite scenario is the delivery of an IPv4 service to an IPv4 user over an IPv6 network (denoted as a 4-6-4 scenario). [RFC6333] covers unicast services exclusively.

         Delivery of IPv4 Multicast Services to IPv4 Clients over                        an IPv6 Multicast Network


   This document specifies a solution for the delivery of IPv4 multicast    services to IPv4 clients over an IPv6 multicast network.  The    solution relies upon a stateless IPv4-in-IPv6 encapsulation scheme    and uses an IPv6 multicast distribution tree to deliver IPv4    multicast traffic.  The solution is particularly useful for the    delivery of multicast service offerings to customers serviced by    Dual-Stack Lite (DS-Lite).
