Technical Summary:

    The Port Control Protocol (PCP) Anycast Addresses enable PCP clients
    to transmit signaling messages to their closest PCP-aware on-path
    NAT, Firewall, or other middlebox, without having to learn the IP
    address of that middlebox via some external channel.  This document
    establishes one well-known IPv4 address and one well-known IPv6
    address to be used as PCP Anycast Addresses.

Working Group Summary:
