- (used to be a discuss, just not a great one;-) Is this clear enough that it is not replacing temporary addresses, and in saying when one ought use those vs. when one ought use 7217? I'm not sure TBH, but, for me, this text reads a bit too much as "use 7217 and not temporary addresses" except for in the place where it says "For example, this document does not change any existing recommendations concerning the use of temporary addresses as specified in [RFC4941],..." So my question is: does this document need more clarity as to when to use 7217 and when to use 4941? I suspect it probably does need a more clear statement about that, if we think we can reach consensus on what that ought say;-) - section 3: is it correct to say "In particular, this document RECOMMENDS that nodes do not generate stable IIDs..." or do you really mean that nodes SHOULD NOT emit packets with <those> in source addresses? IOW, do you mean that nodes SHOULD NOT respond to packets addressed to addresses using stable IIDs? I'm not clear from the text, but am fine with either though I guess that could cause a problem somewhere maybe.

Minor editorial comment: OLD: Stable address: An address that does not vary over time within the same network (as defined in [RFC7721]). NEW: Stable address: An address that does not vary over time within the same network (consistent with [RFC7721]). Justification: This is not the exact same definition.
