RE: RFC 2461- issue list




A few important points there. I'm not sure I have 
the answers for all, but here is my understanding:

 > I have a high-level question first; is the intent to do these updates

 > Or to try to move it to full standard?

=> My understanding was that the new RFC would still
be in DS, but I could be wrong. It'd be good if the 
chairs shed some light on this.

=> Right. So I'm not sure if the goal is to include all
the ND extensions in other specs, again it would be good
to get some feedback on this point. I assumed that extensions
would be done anyway in other specs as deemed necessary.
So, if this assumption is agreeable then the work should be 
limited to clarifying points in the spec or solving problems
that were discovered by people while working with this 
version of ND. Do you think we should include these 
extensions? 

There is also the process issue on what can be added to
a DS, given the requirements on moving from PS to DS
(having every option interop tested and some level of 
deployment), which might stand in the way of adding 
new extensions from a PS/draft.
