It has come to light that there is an issue with the selection of a
suitable IPv6 source address for Multicast Listener Discovery
(MLD) messages when a node is performing stateless address
autoconfiguration.  This document is intended to clarify the rules on
selecting an IPv6 address to use for MLD messages.

This document is a product of the Multicast & Anycast Group Membership
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
