The Preboot section needs more work.  Only if the deployment does not include a router which sends an RA, does the preboot use DHCPv6.   Magically, the node would know to initiate DHCPv6 and preboot...  If the deployment includes a router, the node can generate a global IPv6 address using SLAAC and then use tftpv6 to fetch its OS tar ball and be done.   

Maybe when we have at least 5-6 serious issues collected we can consider the document for v6ops WG adoption.

You have seen my comments about the developing agenda for IETF 93. This is a draft that I'm specifically looking for feedback on. If there is interest in the working group, we may have a few minutes to discuss it f2f; in any event, I think it needs discussion on the list, and I'd be happy to see it discussed somewhere else if that works better.

The draft is a quick read, and I suspect covers only the most glaring issues in IPv6-only networks. Folks that are running IPv6-only handsets in mobile networks are dealing with various issues, no doubt, and we have several wireline networks that are experimenting with IPv6-only with an IPv4 overlay. What are the IPv6 issues (not IPv4 issues) that we are seeing with hosts in IPv6-only networks?

Your comments please...
