No, I am also interested in "multiple network connections per host", but
my main interesting topic is *simultaneous* if multiple networks (or
multiple interfaces) are available. Sorry for this confusion.

I think that there are many working groups, standard bodies and

like MIF to concentrate on simultaneous connections to multiple

networks). I believe that most of cases for simultaneous connections
to multiple networks require multiple addresses. However, it does not
need to be the main focus, but MIF NEEDS it. So, I would like to say
that multiple addresses per host needs to be addressed for
simultaneous use of multiple connections. Therefore, I think working
on MIF problem should be more than just focusing on multiple
I think it's interesting that you appear to consider "multiple addresses
per host" a narrower problem than "multiple network connections per
host", whereas I consider the latter to be a subset of the former.
I suppose that makes a good illustration of why I really want the WG to
explore this issue from multiple points-of-view.
