Hi, Bob,

Some comments inline...

Some errata for the minutes:

The current text says:

Ole asked about how this was different from an unknown L4 header?

<No answer>
---- cut here ----

There was an answer, so "<no answer>" should probably be replaced with
something along the lines of "Fernando notes that having an unknown
extension header means that you have enough information to apply a
filtering policy, whereas if the full IPv6 header chain is missing, you
don't have the necessary information to do it".

I think that draft-gont-6man-predictable-fragment-id is also ready for
wg call for adoption as wg document -- I've rev'ed the document since
IETF 83 in response to the feedback received during my presentation
(i.e., just require the Frag ID to be unpredictable, without mandating
any particular algorithm).

draft-gont-6man-oversized-header-chain is probably ready for wg call for
adoption: I've rev the document in response to feedback during my
presentation at IETF 83 -- but I will check with Dave Thaler and Eric if
they think the updated text is fine, or whether it needs some further
