Earlier this year there was a lot of discussion about slaac renumbering
problems. Our original I-D covered everything from the problem statement
to proposed protocol updates and operational workarounds.

Based on the comments received while discussing this topic on this list
and other forums, and in order to keep the discussion better focused on
specific aspects of the problem, we have posted a v6ops-targetted
document that focuses on:

* The problem statement
* Discussion of operational workarounds, and associated constraints

The document is available at:

We'd like to hear from the wg whether we have missed anything, whether
the document is useful to the community, etc.
