As SRv6 and the new services such as IOAM are progressing, more and more new requirements are imposed upon the IPv6 extension headers, i.e.. Hop-by-hop Options Header, Destination Options Header and Routing Header. This document defines new IPv6 extension headers and corresponding processing procedures considering the interactions among the existing IPv6 extension headers, SRH and the newly introduced IPv6 extension headers.
