- Section 2.5 says "MLD is needed for multicast group knowledge that is not link-local." It would be clearer to re-state (or reference) section 5.10 in RFC 6434. The level of MLD support is dependent upon the types of multicast applications supported on the cellular device. - Is there any need for time synchronization on cellular devices?

It might help to note that EPS/EPC is the packet service for LTE.

- Section 3 no longer really discusses IPsec since that's now in 6434, and doesn't mention TLS at all (nor does 6434 really) so that bullet in section 7 should probably be fixed.

In section 2.9, is there any appropriate way to give more guidance about the implementation of the default router preferences? My naive intuition would be that the host should generally prefer to use a Wifi default route over a 3gpp default route, and indeed I think most phones do this, but that's not what this section says to do. By implementing a top-level preference for one interface over another, aren't handsets violating this recommendation? In section 7: However, it should be noted that in the 3GPP model, the network would assign a new prefix, in most cases, to hosts in roaming situations and typically, also when the cellular hosts activate a PDP Context or a PDN Connection. This means that 3GPP networks will already provide a limited form of addressing privacy, and no global tracking of a single host is possible through its address. Changing prefixes doesn't address the privacy issue that temporary addresses address. Do the host bits change in this situation, or just the prefix bits? If the former, it would be worth saying so to avoid conclusion; if the latter, then the statement is simply wrong.
