Internet-Draft draft-ietf-6man-eh-limits-05.txt is now available. It is a work
item of the IPv6 Maintenance (6MAN) WG of the IETF.

   Title:   Limits on Sending and Processing IPv6 Extension Headers
   Author:  Tom Herbert
   Name:    draft-ietf-6man-eh-limits-05.txt
   Pages:   21
   Dates:   2023-09-25


   This specification defines various limits that may be applied to
   receiving, sending, and otherwise processing packets that contain
   IPv6 extension headers.  The need for such limits is pragmatic to
   facilitate interoperability amongst hosts and routers in the presence
   of extension headers and thereby increasing the feasibility of
   deployment of extension headers.  The limits described herein
   establish the minimum baseline of support for use of extension
   headers in the Internet.  If it is known that all communicating
   parties for a particular communication, including end hosts and any
   intermediate nodes in the path, are capable of supporting more than
   the baseline then these default limits may be freely exceeded.  When
   published, this specification updates [RFC8200] and [RFC8504].
