Technical Summary
  This protocol defines an alternate approach to securing Mobile IPv6
  Route Optimization, based on IPsec/IKE as opposed to the Return
  Routability mechanism specified in RFC 3775.
Working Group Summary
  This was originally adopted by the MIP6 Working Group as a WG
  item. After a discussion with the AD and during the WG's rechartering
  process, the AD decided that this document will be processed as
  an individual submission and not be a part of the group's official

  The question of whether this document is appropriate for the
  Standards Track or be designated Experimental was a topic
  of lengthy discussion between the authors and the AD.
  Based on discussions with the authors, a new substantially
  improved document revision, and privately received information
  about potential users of this specification the AD eventually
  decided that it can be progressed on the Standards Track.
Protocol Quality
  This specifiation has been discussed in the MIP6 WG. It has
  been reviewed by Jari Arkko for the IESG.
