Technical Summary

  DS-Lite, defined in RFC 6333,  directs IANA to reserve
  for the B4 element.  This memo directs IANA to generalize that
  reservation to include other cases where a non-routed IPv4 interface

Working Group Summary

There was support in the working group for the draft, and little if any 

Document Quality

This is not a protocol; it is advice to implementers of 464xlat that the
prefix set aside for use with DS-Lite may also be used by them. Per 
Lorenzo Colitti, it is implemented in the Android OS, and works.
