Well with the caveat that in RPT-SPT after the first Receiver PE travels
the RPT, the (S,G) state is already known to remaining Receiver PEs due to
bgp inherent protocol optimization -  type-5 SA generated by source PE, so
we are effectively in the SPT-only operation  after the first subscriber
behind the "first Receiver PE".

With the static igmpv3 on every Receiver mvpn PE we actually wanted to
emulate VPLS with p2mp optimization (that was initial deployment) avoiding
L2 churn.
