Respectfully decline to do so.

The "multis" are not multicast-related, and I was never a proponent of
them.  I do not, in fact, understand what networking paradigm they are
thought to embody, or who has advocated them.

The "multis" appear to be serial unicast: a trigger message starts a
flow of messages from some other participant, which eventually stops.  I
feel certain that someone has a reason for proposing such patterns, but
it wasn't me, and I don't know what the reason was or is.
