Hi Tim,

I am referring to Tim Chown’s proposed resolution to my original comment:

Tim’s proposal was to cite RFC1122 in the intro, which I agree would be

Thanks - Fred

Hi Fred,

I thought we decided we didn't want to point to the historic IPv4 text in that.  Can you remind me were you wanted that text?

Subject: Updates to RFC6434

We have posted an updated version of 6434bis, with the following changes since Prague:

  *   Text on EH processing
  *   Noted that RFC4191 is a MUST, but a SHOULD for Type C node
  *   Updated RFC references (8200, 8201, 8221, 8247)
  *   Added note on RFC 7772 for power consumption
  *   Added ‘Why /64?’ reference; RFC 7421
  *   Removed jumbogram text
  *   Added reference to draft-ietf-v6ops-unique-ipv6-prefix-per-host
  *   For 3GPP, added ‘snapshot’ comment on RFC7066
  *   Added RFC8028 as a SHOULD (for Section 5.5 from RFC 6724)
  *   Removed ATM over IPv6
  *   Added reference to RFC8064
  *   Added MUST for BCP 198, and ref to draft-ietf-v6ops-ipv6rtr-reqs
  *   Added text on avoiding 1280 MTU for UDP (inc. DNS) traffic
We'll be sending some additional questions to the list later this week to hopefully get this document ready for working group last call.

~Tim, Tim and John

Subject: I-D Action: draft-ietf-6man-rfc6434-bis-02.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the IPv6 Maintenance WG of the IETF.

        Title           : IPv6 Node Requirements
        Authors         : Tim Chown
                          John Loughney
                          Timothy Winters
        Filename        : draft-ietf-6man-rfc6434-bis-02.txt
        Pages           : 40
        Date            : 2017-10-30

   This document defines requirements for IPv6 nodes.  It is expected
   that IPv6 will be deployed in a wide range of devices and situations.
   Specifying the requirements for IPv6 nodes allows IPv6 to function
   well and interoperate in a large number of situations and

   This document obsoletes RFC 6434, and in turn RFC 4294.
