We submitted a new version of ND optimizations for 6LoWPAN, closing the two editorial tickets we had from Prague. In addition we made improvements to the tables at the end of the document (thanks to Carsten) and aligned the title to match HC. These changes do not affect implementations of the specification.

> Filename:	 draft-ietf-6lowpan-nd
> Revision:	 16
> Title:		 Neighbor Discovery Optimization for Low Power and Lossy Networks (6LoWPAN)
> Creation date:	 2011-05-24
> 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.
