Hi Nalini,

I did a read of this draft.   I have a few questions and comments.

Given the title "IPv6 Over Bluetooth for Power Affluent Devices”  I was expecting to see an IPv6 over <foo> document, but this isn’t that.   It does a good job summarizing IETF Bluetooth work in this area with many references.  I assume the key is “Power Affluent Devices”.   A different title that makes that clearer might be helpful.

The Disaster recovery section is interesting, but I not sure this is exclusive to Bluetooth.   WiFi and other link technologies can probably also be used without Internet as well.

Section 4.5.  "Shortwave radio" seems out of sync (not bluetooth) with the rest of the draft, not sure why that is included.

Overall, I am not sure what the goal is for document is.   It covers a lot of areas but I am not sure what it is accomplishing.

> Abstract:
>   IPv6 over Bluetooth enables devices to communicate using the IPv6
>   protocol stack over Bluetooth wireless connections, expanding the
>   range of networking options available to devices with Bluetooth
>   capability.  RFC 7668 and RFC 9159 describe IPv6 over Bluetooth for
>   Bluetooth Low Energy devices.  However, the potential of this
>   technology has yet to be fully explored.  This document proposes
>   using this technology for power affluent devices with optional header
>   compression and discusses some use cases.
