Folks: While performing the Gen-ART review of the
draft-ietf-sipping-ipv6-torture-test document, an extant bug in
the IPv6 ABNF production rules of RFC3261 was discovered.

A quick dialog with the chairs resulted in the understanding
that this could potentially be fixed as part of the SIP essential
corrections process, once it was ratified by the WG.

Brian and I have submitted a short draft describing this bug and
its resolution to the IETF.  Until it appears in the archives, you
