Summary: Ready with (minor) issues


This seems to be a fine document. FYI I am not a YANG expert.

There is a dissent on a point of principle in the WG archive at
"Given the historical opposition to revising models once they have been cast as RFCs
that we have seen within the IETF, then I feel that avoiding incomplete models going
to RFC is the best course of action."

My understanding is that YANG models are intrinsically extensible, and this is
noted in the Abstract and Introduction. So I don't find this dissent compelling.

Minor Issues:

Re on-link-flag and autonomous-flag: Please consider adding a normative
reference to the approved RFC-to-be draft-ietf-6man-multi-homed-host,
as well as RFC 4861. That document specifies that having both these flags
set to False is a legitimate combination, against current expectations.

Did you consider doing anything explicit for ULA prefixes, or would
this just be handled by special-next-hop/prohibit in border routers?

IPv6 hosts should definitely not send RFC4861 router advertisements.
Should that be stated in this appendix?
