Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document discusses an IPv6 deployment scenario when individual
   clients connected to large broadcast networks (such as enterprise
   networks or public Wi-Fi networks) are allocated unique prefixes via
   DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation (DHCPv6-PD).

Working Group Summary

   This document had a large email discussion over its lifecycle, with
   some individuals expressing reservations. There was also a robust
   discussion after the working group chairs declared consensus. These
   are summarized in the Shepherd Writeup.

   While it is always nicer to have unanimous consensus on a document,
   I believe that the concerns raised were truly considered by the working group,
   that the working group made an informed decision, that the objections 
   are not enough of a technical problem to prevent moving forward, and
   that individuals raising concerns accept being in the rough. 
   


Document Quality

   The document is well written, and easy to understand.
   It documents and recommends a deployment model, 
   using existing technologies.

Personnel

   Timothy Winters is DS.
   Warren "Ace" Kumari is RAD!!!!
