Hi Folks,
   This draft addresses a lot of comments we received on version -01 of 
the draft. It requests just 1 allocation from IANA for future IPv6 
extension headers and the distinction between different headers is done 
using a specific type field inside the generic extension header.

In IPv6,optional internet-layer information is encoded in separate
headers that may be placed between the IPv6 header and the transport
layer header.  There are a small number of such extension headers
currently defined.  This document defines a format for defining new
IPv6 extension headers.
