ROLL WG Design Team for bitstring addressing.

The intended first phase charter of this design team is to generate
guidance for next steps in ROLL to scope and adopt work to support
efficiently encoded "bitstring" style addresses. This addressing is meant
to support more lightweight unicast and multicast forwarding options - both
in terms of packet header size and/or per-node state. One starting point is
stateless BIER-TE bitstring style addresses allowing to specify paths just
as a sequence of bit addresses. The other starting point is bloom filters
to compress large, stateful BIER bitstring style addressing.

The design team will consult with BIER WG, but because ROLL is focusing on
low bitrate, low-power, software-forwarding, its solution space can explore
options that may not necessarily be considered appropriate for general
purpose BIER solutions that desire to support ASIC/NPU forwarding.
