In IPv6-only provider networks, transporting IPv4 packets
encapsulated in IPv6 is a common solution to the problem of IPv4
service continuity.  A number of differing functional approaches have
been developed for this, each having their own specific
characteristics.  As these approaches share a similar functional
architecture and use the same data plane mechanisms, this memo
specifies a DHCPv6 option, whereby a single instance of Customer
Premises Equipment (CPE) can interwork with all of the standardized
and proposed approaches to providing encapsulated IPv4-in-IPv6
services by providing a prioritization mechanism.

This document is a product of the Softwires Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
