Thank you for your review and comments.
I'm sorry that I could not addressed all issues in -02.

The rfc3484-revise does not mention about the whole problem related to address selection, but it does focus on the present issues for RFC 3484 itself.

It may be helpful if we mention about the whole problem for the readers to grasp the big picture, too. I'll put some texts about them in the introduction, where problem statement and requirement, and the solution documents will be referenced.

Sorry, writing clear english is always an assignment for me. X(

How about the following text ?

"When a destination address DA, DB and the source address S are on the
same subnet, the present longest matching rule always choose the same
destination address."

I hope all were corrected.

I do not know.
Do we see 2001:db8:: addresses on a real packets ?

Do you think it should be addressed in RFC 3484 revision, or in the policy distribution draft, or totally different way ?

Kindest regards,
