The MBONE Deployment Working Group is a forum for coordinating
  the deployment, engineering, and operation of multicast routing
  protocols and procedures in the global Internet. This activity will
  include, but not be limited to:
  - Documenting deployment of multicast routing in the global Internet.
  - Receive regular reports on the current state of the deployment of
    multicast technology. Create "practice and experience" documents that
    capture the experience of those who have deployed and are deploying
    various multicast technologies.
  - Based on reports and other information, provide feedback to other
    relevant working groups.
  - Develop mechanisms and procedures for sharing operational
    information to aid in operation of the multicast backbones and
  - Update RFC 3171/BCP 51 based on experience. 
  - Develop a roadmap informational RFC that describes the current
    IPv4 and IPv6 IETF multicast architectures, including
    references to the relevant IETF documents and guidance for
    implementers and network operators. 
  - Complete the MSDP MIB
  This is not meant to be a protocol development Working Group.
