Document: draft-ietf-v6ops-cidr-prefix-01
Reviewer: David Black
Review Date: April 20, 2015
IETF LC End Date: April 20, 2015

Summary: This draft is basically ready for publication, but has nits that
	should be fixed before publication.

This is a short crisp draft on behavior of CIDR prefixes in IPv6 forwarding
with respect to the /64 boundary in IPv6 addresses.  It's clear, well explained
easy to understand, plus refreshingly short.  Nicely done!

Major issues: (none)

Minor issues: (none)

Nits/editorial comments: Ok, I found a nit ... and so did idnits ;-).

-- Abstract

   Hardware and software
   algorithms should therefore impose no rules on prefix length, but
   implement longest-match-first on prefixes of any valid length.

"algorithms" isn't the right word.
I suggest "implementations of routing and forwarding"

idnits pointed out that: A later version (-06) exists of
