I would appreciate some feedback on 
draft-moonesamy-smtp-ipv6-00.  The I-D discusses about SMTP in an 
IPv4/IPv6 dual stack environment.  It documents the algorithm 
initially specified in RFC 3974 which is used in several SMTP implementations.

The change from RFC 3974 is:

  - Removal of the Basic DNS Resource Record Definitions for Mail 
Routing section

  - Removal of the SMTP Sender Algorithm in a Dual-Stack Environment section

  - Removal of the Operational Experience and open issues sections.

  - RFC 5321 remains authoritative for SMTP

Please note that the algorithm has already been used in several 
existing implementations.
