Technical Summary

  NAT64 [RFC6146] with DNS64 [RFC6147] is a widely-deployed mechanism
  to provide IPv4 access on IPv6-only networks.  In various scenarios,
  the host must be aware of the NAT64 prefix in use by the network.
  This document specifies a Router Advertisement [RFC4861] option to
  communicate the NAT64 prefix to hosts.
