Technical Summary:

This document specifies protocol enhancements for allowing the local
mobility anchor in a Proxy Mobile IPv6 domain to asynchronously
notify the mobile access gateway about changes related to a mobility
session. These update notification messages are exchanged using a
new Mobility Header message type specifically designed for this
purpose.

Working Group Summary:

The extension to Proxy Mobile IPv6 was viewed as essential to the
protocol and hence was adopted by the working group and progressed
with no issues.

Document Quality:

The document has been reviewed by multiple experts within the working
group and has been updated based on the feedback received. The quality
of the document itself is good and ready for IESG review. All
reviewers have been acknowledged in the I-D. The extension is relevant
and has been requested by 3GPP as an enhancement to the
protocol. Multiple vendors are likely to implement this extension to
Proxy Mobile IPv6.
