Folks,

Some comments:

* Section 4 (Sec Cons) says:
"  IPv6 addresses can
   be created using interface identifiers constructed with unique stable
   tokens.  The addresses created in this manner can be used to track
   the movement of devices across the Internet."

here you meant "constant", rather than stable. Constant IIDs (as
resulting from embedding constant MAC addresses in the IID) allow for
tracking devices across the Internet. Stable IIDs (as resulting from
RFC7217) do not.

Thanks,
Fernando
