1.  Introduction

   [RFC8279] introduces and explains Bit Index Explicit Replication
   (BIER) architecture and how it supports forwarding of multicast data
   packets.

   This document lists the OAM requirements for BIER layer of the
   multicast domain.  The list can further be used to for gap analysis
   of available OAM tools to identify possible enhancements of existing
   or whether new OAM tools are required to support proactive and on-
   demand path monitoring and service validation.
