>Filename:	 draft-freedman-pppext-ipv6-6rd
>Revision:	 00
>Title:		 IPv6 6RD IPCP configuration option for PPP
>Creation date:	 2011-07-25
>WG ID:		 Individual Submission
>Number of pages: 11
>   The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) (RFC1661) provides a standard
>   method for transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point
>   links.  PPP defines an extensible Link Control Protocol and a family
>   of Network Control Protocols (NCPs) for establishing and configuring
>   different network-layer protocols.
>   This document extends the NCP for establishing and configuring the
>   Internet Protocol over PPP (RFC1332), defining the negotiation of 6RD
>   (RFC5969) Border Relay (BR) addresses.  While the authors believe one
>   could use DHCP INFORM (RFC2131) to obtain the necessary 6RD
>   parameters, this is simply an alternative which allows reuse of an
>   existing PPP-based configuration infrastructure.
