Title : A flexible method for managing the assignment of
bites of an IPv6 address block
Author(s) : M. Blanchet
Filename : draft-ietf-ipv6-ipaddressassign-03.txt
Pages : 9

This document proposes a method to manage the assignment of bits of
an IPv6 address block or range. When an organisation needs to make
an address plan for its subnets or when an ISP needs to make an
address plan for its customers, this method enables the organisation
to postpone the final decision on the number of bits to partition in
the address space they have. It does it by keeping the bits around
the borders of the partition to be free as long as possible. This
scheme is applicable to any bits addressing scheme using bits with
partitions in the space, but its first intended use is for IPv6. It
is a generalization of RFC1219 and can be used for IPv6 assignments.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
