That's PVCs, right ? With PVCs, it's simpler than with SVCs, because all
hosts on the same LIS know must each other. With SVCs, only the ATMARP
server knows that it knows everybody.

Multi-/broadcast for CLIP ? Very rarely. Seems that most people are
using LANE for this. Multicast signaling for native ATM comes up a
little more frequently, maybe every 1-3 months, but never really gets
to the point where something useful emerges.
