His review of -08:

OK.  I have enough other work that I'm not going to do a full
re-review, but I went through my earlier review and checked all of the
items I found then and they all seem to have been adequately addressed.

Section 7 says that "AAAA and PTR records for locally assigned local IPv6 addresses are not recommended to be installed in the global DNS."  Some text to explain why would be helpful.

  Section 3.2.2 makes use of MD5.  While MD5 is probably fine for this
  application, I strongly prefer SHA-1.  I propose the replacement
  of steps 4) and 5) with the following:
     4) Compute an SHA-1 digest on the key as specified in [FIPS, SHA1];
        the resulting value is 160 bits.
     5) Use the least significant 40 bits as the Global ID.

     [FIPS]   Federal Information Processing Standards Publication
              (FIPS PUB) 180-1, Secure Hash Standard, 17 April 1995.
     [SHA1]   D. Eastlake 3rd and P. Jones,  US Secure Hash Algorithm 1 
              (SHA1), RFC 3174, September 2001.

  Section 3.2.2 provides an algorithm, but not source code.  I think
  the title of the section should be changed.
