The IESG has received a request from the IPv6 Operations WG (v6ops) to
consider the following document: - 'Operational Implications of IPv6 Packets
with Extension Headers'
  <draft-ietf-v6ops-ipv6-ehs-packet-drops-05.txt> as Informational RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the

Abstract


   This document summarizes the operational implications of IPv6
   extension headers specified in the IPv6 protocol specification
   (RFC8200), and attempts to analyze reasons why packets with IPv6
   extension headers are often dropped in the public Internet.
