Folks,

One thing that is missing in this document is a reality-check of the use
of Extension Headers in the public Internet.

No matter whether one likes it or not, published studies regarding the
drop rate of IPv6 packets with extension headers should signal an alarm
in at least the operational world.

RFC7872 ("Observations on the Dropping of Packets with IPv6 Extension
Headers in the Real World") might be of use here.

Thanks,
Fernando
