This document changes the recommended default Interface Identifier
(IID) generation scheme for cases where Stateless Address
Autoconfiguration (SLAAC) is used to generate a stable IPv6 address.
It recommends using the mechanism specified in RFC 7217 in such
cases, and recommends against embedding stable link-layer addresses
in IPv6 IIDs.  It formally updates RFC 2464, RFC 2467, RFC 2470, RFC
2491, RFC 2492, RFC 2497, RFC 2590, RFC 3146, RFC 3572, RFC 4291, RFC
4338, RFC 4391, RFC 5072, and RFC 5121.  This document does not
change any existing recommendations concerning the use of temporary
addresses as specified in RFC 4941.

This document is a product of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the
