Hello.

I read through 2.3 of the draft, and I am a bit unclear as to how the 
next-hop should be selected.

In the case of my SLAAC machine, I see the next-hop for my default-route 
as a LL address. How would the SA and the default router LL be tied 
together?

In the case of getting address using DHCPv6, there is also no direct 
connection between the default route and the SA, as the DHCPv6 server 
might be different from the default-route gw?

There is a use of "destination D" in several places, for a default-route 
this seems misplaced and has caused misunderstandings recent discussions 
in v6ops, perhaps there would be benefit in using different terminology 
here?
