Technical Summary
 
  This document specifies the way of encapsulating IPv6 packets over
  Fibre Channel, and the method of forming IPv6 link-local addresses
  and statelessly autoconfigured addresses on Fibre Channel networks. 

Working Group Summary

  The initial WG Last Call resulted in a number (19) of Editorial
  comments and 2 Technical comments. The technical comments were
  as follows:
  - Use of a default large MTU size (65280 octets) for IPv6 over
    Fibre Channel, which far exceeds the message sizes typically
    used in the Internet. As a result, an explanation has been 
    added with additional guidance. See section 5.
  - An inconsistency in the format of the Source/Target Link-layer
    Address option (used with Neighbor Discovery Protocol). This
    has been corrected in the 01 revision.
  - Further changes were made because of IESG review which resulted
    in revision 02.
  The working group has consensus to publish revision 02 of this
  document as a standards track RFC.
 
Protocol Quality
 
  This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman and
  Bert Wijnen. Additional/explicit review was also requested from
  the IPv6 Working Group.
