An updated version of "Route Information Options in Redirect Messages" is now
available (see below). This version addresses 6man list comments posted in the
1/9/2017 - 1/12/2017 timeframe, and re-aligns the work from intarea to 6man.
It also expands on several aspects of the proposal that were not covered in the
intarea draft. Please (re-)review and post comments to the list.

Fred and James

   The IPv6 Neighbor Discovery protocol provides a Redirect function
   allowing routers to inform recipients of a better next hop on the
   link toward the destination.  This document specifies a backward-
   compatible extension to the Redirect function to allow routers to
   include routing information that the recipient can associate with the
   next hop.
