Technical Summary This document describes routing packets destined to IPv4-embedded IPv6 addresses across an IPv6 core using OSPFv3 with a separate routing table. Working Group Summary Although presented at multiple IETFs, the draft did not generate a lot of comments. At one point, it included changes to the OSPFv3 protocol due to the suggestion that the IPv4 domains could be abstracted as OSPFv3 areas. This was discarded due to the complexity and the fact that it was above and beyond the RFC 5838 mechanisms. Document Quality The document has gone through several WG review cycles and revisions. Comments were received from some WG members as well as the chair of the BEHAVE WG. To the best of my knowledge, there are no implementations. We also WG last called the draft in the BEHAVE WG and received some comments from Brian Carpenter relative to positioning the draft with other IPv4<->IPv6 transition mechanisms. The latest version of the draft clarifies this. Personnel Acee Lindem is the document shepherd and Stewart Bryant is the responsible AD.
