I have edited the txt file, largely to tidy up the English in a few places.   There's nothing I disagree with in the text.   So you could diff the file with yours to see if you want to apply the changes.

Some other comments:

We don't cite draft-ietf-6man-addr-select-sol-03 or draft-ietf-v6ops-addr-select-req-07 - would this be worth doing?    Should probably have a final pass through those to ensure everything is captured in the 3484 bis text?

Note the address selection considerations reference is now a WG item: draft-ietf-6man-addr-select-considerations-02; this needs updating in your text.

I found this sentence a little clumsy:
"When a destination address DA, DB, and the source address of DA
   Source(DA) are on the same subnet and Source(DA) == Source(DB), DNS
   round robin load-balancing cannot function. "
Maybe it can be written a little more clearly?

Quite a few of the citations (reference labels) appear after the full stops in sentences, not before.   Corrected in the attached text.

Do we want to add a rule for 2001:db8:: ?     If 3ffe:: is in there...

And I would still love to see a way to add a rule to put privacy address preference in there.   This would be a great way to help answer the concerns in long email threads currently running in other lists :)
