So, it's my fault that I wasn't participating 19 years ago?  Really?

If it's too late to object to the text, why did you change it?


:4291bis-07 (currently under discussion):
:
:   IPv6 unicast routing is based on prefixes of any valid length up to
:   128 [BCP198].  For example, [RFC6164] standardises 127 bit prefixes
:   on inter-router point-to-point links.  However, the Interface ID of
:   all unicast addresses, except those that start with the binary value
:   000, is required to be 64 bits long.  The rationale for the 64 bit
:   boundary in IPv6 addresses can be found in [RFC7421]
:
:RFC 4291 (February 2006):
:
:   For all unicast addresses, except those that start with binary value
:   000, Interface IDs are required to be 64 bits long and to be
:   constructed in Modified EUI-64 format.

This life is a test.  It is only a test.  Had this been an actual life,
you would have received further instructions as to what to do and where
to go.
