   This specification proposes an update to IPv6 Neighbor Discovery, to
   enhance the operation of IPv6 over wireless links that exhibit lossy
   multicast support, and enable a large degree of scalability by
   splitting the broadcast domains.  A higher speed backbone federates
   multiple wireless links to form a large MultiLink Subnet.  Backbone
   Routers acting as Layer-3 Access Point route packets to registered
   nodes, where an classical Layer-2 Access Point would bridge.
   Conversely, wireless nodes register to the Backbone Router to setup
   routing services in a fashion that is essentially similar to a
   classical Layer-2 association.
