   This document defines a representation of the O/R Address hierarchy
   in the Directory Information Tree [6, 1].  This is useful for a range
   of purposes, including:

o  Support for MHS Routing [4].

o  Support for X.400/RFC 822 address mappings [2, 5].

1.  The O/R Address Hierarchy

   An O/R Address hierarchy is represented in the X.500 directory by
   associating directory name components with O/R Address components.
   An example of this is given in Figure 1.  The object classes and
   attributes required to support this representation are defined in
   Figure 2.  The schema, which defines the hierarchy in which these
