Hi, Mohacsi,

You mean "against replacing addresses embedding IEEE identifiers"?

Just curious: Is there a specific use case for IEEE-derived addresses
that cannot be satisfied with draft-gont-6man-stable-privacy-addresses?

Why would you want to do it?

I don't follow. RFC 4941 generates addresses in addition to the stable
ones, so.. how could they possibly fix the scanning problem?

Thanks!
