> This ID is not a specification for a standard, since it is an IRTF
document. It does specify, in considerable detail, the location privacy
behavior for Mobile IPv6. The use of "MAY", "SHOULD", and "MUST" are used
for protocol behavior, just as we have done for other RG RFCs 4651, 5184,
and that does not constitute "standard protocol specification", AFAIK.

ok, sounds ok for me then - just wanted to be sure

cheers
