@ianswett I think migration and preferred address are separate parts of the protocol. The goal of this PR is to improve preferred address. It allows the client to pick the address family it transfers to right after the handshake. If the server only provides you with a preferred address family you don't have access to, you can simply ignore it - and that's not new from this PR. I've slightly tweaked the text to clarify how clients respond to preferred_address. Does this address your concerns?
