   The current route target distribution specification as described in
   [RFC 4684] defines Route Target NLRIs of maximum length of 12 bytes.
   The IPv6 specific Route Target extended community is defined in [RFC
   5701] as length of 20 bytes.  Since the current specification only
   supports prefixes of maximum length of 12 bytes, the lack of an IPv6
   specific Route Target reachability information may be a problem when
   an operator wants to use this application in a pure IPv6 environment.
   This document defines an extension that allows BGP to exchange longer
   length IPv6 Route Target prefixes.
