Technical Summary

   This draft defines a way to configure a parameter set of MPL 
   (Multicast Protocol for Low power  and Lossy Networks) via 
   DHCPv6 option.  MPL has a set of parameters to control its 
   behavior, and the parameter set is often configured network-wide 
   because it should be identical for each MPL forwarder in an 
   MPL domain.  Using the MPL Parameter Configuration Option 
   defined in this document, a network can be configured with a 
   single set of MPL parameters easily.
