Hi Bing,

In section 1 you say:

“ The use of ULA addresses in various types of networks has been
 confusing to network operators. Some network operators believe ULAs
 are not useful at all while other network operators have run ULAs
 beneficially in their networks."

This implies you know operators who are using ULAs beneficially. It would be nice if those operators are reading this and can comment.  Or failing that for you to make it clear where possible in the text which parts you are writing based on those operators’ comments, and which parts are more theoretical.

There are some parts of the text which are written almost in note form.  It would be nice to tidt those parts up a little.
