The IPv6 Host Address Availability Recommendations Best Current Practice (RFC 7934), describes why IPv6 hosts should use multiple global addresses when attaching to a network. This document updates RFC 7934 by removing a recommendation for networks to give the host the ability to use new addresses without requiring explicit requests.
