Thank you for the work put into this document.

Please find below two blocking DISCUSS points (probably easy to address), some
non-blocking COMMENT points (but replies would be appreciated even if only for
my own education), and some nits.

Special thanks to Barry Leiba for his concise shepherd's write-up but very
clear about the WG consensus.

Thank you also to Donald Eastlake for this INT directorate review that I am
vastly supporting:

I hope that this helps to improve the document,




Generic comment how are link-local address (LLA) with scope encoded ? I would
expect CBOR to work also on LLA only networks... At the bare minimum, please
state that link-local addresses cannot be encoded with their scope, hence, they
cannot represent an interface.

-- Section 3.1.3 --
How can 2 valid link-local addresses (fe80::1%eth0, fe80::1%eth1) can be
represented in order to identity two interfaces ?



I love how your start with IPv6 in section 3 and use the ASCII codes for '6'
and '4' ;-)

-- Section 3.2 --
Is there any reason why part of the IPv6 is in lowercase (as in RFC 5952) and
the other part in uppercase ? This is confusing to the reader (even if
hexadecimal numbers are obviously case insensitive).

== NITS ==

-- Abstract --
Should CBOR be expanded ?
