We missed a really useful set of WGLC comments from Esko Dijk during the nd-16 release editing (sorry!). This nd-17 release takes care of those comments, which helped to clarify next-hop determination of multicast addresses, a couple normative errors, and editorial nits.

> Filename:	 draft-ietf-6lowpan-nd
> Revision:	 17
> Title:		 Neighbor Discovery Optimization for Low Power and Lossy Networks (6LoWPAN)
> Creation date:	 2011-06-13
> WG ID:		 6lowpan
> Number of pages: 60
> Abstract:
>   The IETF 6LoWPAN working group defines IPv6 over Low-power Wireless
>   Personal Area Networks such as IEEE 802.15.4.  This and other similar
>   link technologies have limited or no usage of multicast signaling due
>   to energy conservation.  In addition, the wireless network may not
>   strictly follow traditional concept of IP subnets and IP links.  IPv6
>   Neighbor Discovery was not designed for non-transitive wireless
>   links.  The traditional IPv6 link concept and heavy use of multicast
>   make the protocol inefficient and sometimes impractical in a low
>   power and lossy network.  This document describes simple
>   optimizations to IPv6 Neighbor Discovery, addressing mechanisms and
>   duplicate address detection for 6LoWPAN and similar networks.
