Chris - allow me to Cc the list, thanks.

A number of messages on the email list (at least 4 persons) said that
link-local addresses could be used and they said they are not
necessarily against them.

Being against me is a typical behavior and I'm fine with it.  But if one
checks the emails one sees that personal opinions are tolerant with
respect to link-local addresses, and not necessarily discourages them.

It is the stubordness to update the draft which is not normal - a plain
error.
