I am really glad to see this document getting published. It has been a long
while in the making.

This should be easy to clear but I would like to make sure that the calculation
used here to determine TLV lengths is accurate.

* In Sections,,,, 3.3.3. the TLV-Length is
shown to be 4+length of the contents of the TLV-Data (either the ipv6pref or
the ipv4pref). Maybe I am missing something, but I think this should be
2+length of the contents of the TLV-Data instead.

Can you please clarify how you arrived at 4+x instead of 2+x?


* Section

The datatype for Softwire46-DMR is misspelt.

The attribute Softwire46-DMR is of type ip6pref

The attribute Softwire46-DMR is of type ipv6pref

* Not a strong opinion but I think RFC7596, RFC7597 and RFC7599 should probably
be normative instead of informative.
