I think they would be like IP multicast routers, but operating at L2
instead of L3. Multicast routers, unlike IP unicast routers, need to be
concerned with multiple next-hops picking up the same packet. Same issue
appears for RBridges. The proposed solution for RBridges is what we have
for multicast (a single elected forwarder).
