Section 6.1.5 EID-to-RLOC UDP Map-Reply message

A Map-Request for EID, would cause a Map-Reply with a record
count of 3 to be returned with mapping records for EID-prefixes,, and

To address this perhaps insert something like the following:

"When an ETR replies to a Map-Request, it must reply with its
EID-prefix that is the best match for the Map-Request. In addition,
if it is configured with any EID-prefixes which are more-specifics
of the best match EID-prefix that it returns in its Map-Reply, it
must return all of those more-specific EID-prefixe s in the same
