I don't see a lot of transport documents that make me think this, but: Kudos
for an easy read.

In Sections 6.1.1 and 6.1.2, there are the following uses of BCP 14 language:

* "Routers SHOULD create a new entry ..."

* "In such cases a node SHOULD send up to MAX_NEIGHBOR_ADVERTISEMENT Neighbor
Advertisement messages."

* "If the address is preferred then the Override flag SHOULD NOT be set."

* "The destination address SHOULD be set to the all-routers multicast address."

* "The first advertisement SHOULD be sent as soon as one of the following
events happens:"

To a transport expert the answer to this may be obvious, but I'm left wondering
why these are only SHOULD [NOT]s.  Is there a ever a good reason to deviate
from those instructions?  I generally find it helps to, when using SHOULD
[NOT], include a sentence or two about why it might be necessary to do
something else, to guide novice readers.  It's not strictly necessary, but
something to consider here.

Apart from that, I have only a couple of boring nits to offer:

Section 1:

* "It can causes ..." -- s/causes/cause/

Section 5:

* "The section 2.2 of ..." -- s/The section/Section/
