We have posted an updated version of 6434bis, with the following changes
since Prague:

   - Text on EH processing
   - Noted that RFC4191 is a MUST, but a SHOULD for Type C node
   - Updated RFC references (8200, 8201, 8221, 8247)
   - Added note on RFC 7772 for power consumption
   - Added ‘Why /64?’ reference; RFC 7421
   - Removed jumbogram text
   - Added reference to draft-ietf-v6ops-unique-ipv6-prefix-per-host
   - For 3GPP, added ‘snapshot’ comment on RFC7066
   - Added RFC8028 as a SHOULD (for Section 5.5 from RFC 6724)
   - Removed ATM over IPv6
   - Added reference to RFC8064
   - Added MUST for BCP 198, and ref to draft-ietf-v6ops-ipv6rtr-reqs
   - Added text on avoiding 1280 MTU for UDP (inc. DNS) traffic

We'll be sending some additional questions to the list later this week to
hopefully get this document ready for working group last call.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
This draft is a work item of the IPv6 Maintenance WG of the IETF.

   This document defines requirements for IPv6 nodes.  It is expected
   that IPv6 will be deployed in a wide range of devices and situations.
   Specifying the requirements for IPv6 nodes allows IPv6 to function
   well and interoperate in a large number of situations and

   This document obsoletes RFC 6434, and in turn RFC 4294.
