Re: CONSENSUS CALL: Deprecating Site-Local Addressing



NO -- Do not deprecate site-local unicast addressing.

	- Site-locals should be retained for disconnected sites.

	- Site-locals should be retained for intermittently
	  connected sites.

	- Site-locals should be retained as a means for internal
	  connections to survive global prefix renumbering.

	- Other #1
	  In the absence of a defined private prefix people will either
	  invent their own or use 2002::/16 with RFC1918 addresses which
	  will cause worse problems than SLs.

	- Other #2
	  SLs should be retained since they provide a large and free
	  address space for anybody to use, test, research and develop
	  with.
