Technical Summary:

        This short specification provides a simple addition to 6LoWPAN Header
        Compression that enables the compression of generic headers and
        header-like payloads, without a need to define a new header
        compression scheme for each new such header or header-like payload.

Working Group Summary:

        There were no particular points of contention in the WG process, and the
        consensus behind publication of this document as a Standards Track RFC
        appears solid.
