Read the first three paragraphs of abstract of the draft:

    This memo describes the architecture of end to end multihoming.  End
    to end multihoming does not burden routing system for multihoming.
    That is, even extensive use of end to end multihoming does not
    increase the number of entries in a global routing table.

    Traditionally with IPv4, multihoming capability is offered by an
    intelligent routing system, which, as is always the case with
    violating the end to end principle, lacks scalability on a global
    routing table size and robustness against link failures.

    On the other hand, with end to end multihoming, multihoming is
    supported by transport (TCP) or application layer (UDP etc.) of end
    systems and does not introduce any problem in the network and works
    as long as there is some connectivity between the end systems.

Read the title of the draft. The draft is not intended to describe
protocol details.

There are other articles, some of which are peer reviewed papers, 
describing details.

But, first thing for you to do is to read the title and the abstract
section of the architectural draft

> Try attaching an actual protocol specification

Read the title of the draft.
