	Title           : An IPv6 Routing Header for Source Routes with RPL

In Low power and Lossy Networks (LLNs), memory constraints on routers
may limit them to maintaining at most a few routes.  In some
configurations, it is necessary to use these memory constrained
routers to deliver datagrams to nodes within the LLN.  The Routing
for Low Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) protocol can be used in some
deployments to store most, if not all, routes on one (e.g. the
Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) root) or few routers and forward the
IPv6 datagram using a source routing technique to avoid large routing
tables on memory constrained routers.  This document specifies a new
IPv6 Routing header type for delivering datagrams within a RPL
