Summary: Ready with nits

Major issues: none

Minor issues: the title (and the Abstract) is a bit misleading: it is
not the benchmarking of the ND protocol which has ~12 different
functions but the benchmarking of a particular function on a router.
Now it is the critical one so my concern is more the document is
limited to only this one...

Nits/editorial comments: 
 - ToC page 2 and 7 page 12: Acknowledgements -> Acknowledgments

 - 1 page 2: the limit to a router explains why the verb send is
  replaced by forward... and why there is nothing about redirection

 - 1 page 2: determine the IPv6 next-hop's link-layer address
  -> determine the outgoing interface and the IPv6 next-hop's
   link-layer address

 - 2.2.1 page 5: et cetera -> etc

 - 3.1.2 page 9 (twice) and 3.2.2 page 10; recieved -> received

 - 3.1.2 page 9: IMHO you should define the "initial" term (for final
  the meaning is obvious)
 - 3.2.1 page 10: (i.e.,IPv6 -> (i.e., IPv6

 - 3.2.2 page 10: in "packets-received will either be
   equal to zero or packets-received." the last received -> sent.
