Rbridge forwards frames based on L2 address in data plane. But it uses
routing protocols which may operate at L3 in control plane. If L3 address is
used, is Rbridge a L2 device? And I think IPv4 and IPv6 should both be
Still now, I am not sure whether the routing protocol can use MAC address
via adding a new TLV in IS-IS.

Rbridge is an L2 device; at the ingress, it should be capable of peeking
into various packets for optimization like other L2 systems, e.g., for
multicast. This includes IPv4 and IPv6, but these are just optimizations
- if not implemented, it should not affect correct operation.
