Hello again Tatuya,

Here is an updated description of the IPv6 address type when used as a MNID:

> 4.1.  Description of the IPv6 address type
>
>     The IPv6 address [RFC4291] is encoded as a 16 octet string containing
>     the full IPv6 address.  The IPv6 address MUST be a unicast routable
>     IPv6 address.  Multicast addresses, link-local addresses, and the
>     unspecified IPv6 address MUST NOT be used.  IPv6 Unique Local
>     Addresses (ULAs) MAY be used, as long as any security operations
>     making use of the ULA also take into account the domain in which the
>     ULA is guaranteed to be unique.

Please let me know if this resolves your concern.

Regards,
Charlie P.
