This is a simple and straightforward document, fixing an omission in RFC 6275,
which updated RFC 4861 without explicitly marking it as such,  and failed to
create a registry to avoid conflicts. The content of the document looks fine,
but there are several minor issues that I would recommend to be considered and
discussed before approval and publication.

Minor issues:

1. As this document fixes a problem created by RFC 6275 which was was not
marked as updating RFC 4861, and did not create a registry to avoid conflicts,
it looks like this RFC (if approved) should also update RFC 6275.

2. Section 3 includes a reference to [IANA-TBD] which is not defined in the

3. As the new registry contains one bit defined by RFC 6275, it seems that
[RFC6275] should also be a Normative Reference.

4. Section 4 - It would be good to capitalize Standards Action, and refer to
RFC 8126 as reference (also to be added)

Nits/editorial comments:

1. The Abstract and the Introduction contain a sentence with broken syntax:

'The purpose of this document is to request that IANA to create a new registry

2. Several acronyms in the document are not explicitly expanded: ND, PIO, NDP
