1.  Introduction

   [RFC8505] defines the Routing Registrar and extends [RFC6775] to use
   a 6LoWPAN Border Router (6LBR) as a central service for Address
   Registration and duplicate detection amongst Routing Registrars and
   possibly individual Nodes that access it directly.

   [I-D.ietf-6lo-backbone-router] introduces the Backbone Router (6BBR)
   as a Routing Registrar that performs IPv6 ND [RFC4861] [RFC4862]
   proxy operation between IPv6 Nodes on a federating Backbone Link and
   Registering Nodes attached to a LowPower Lossy Networks (LLNs) that
   register their addresses to the 6BBR.  The federated links form a
   Multilink Subnet (MLSN).

   The 6BBRs may exchange Extended Duplicate Address Messages (EDAR and
   EDAC) [RFC8505] to register the proxied addresses on behalf of the
   Registering Nodes to the 6LBR.  The Registration Ownership Verifier
   (ROVR) field in the EDAR and EDAC messages is used to correlate
   attempts to register the same address and to detect duplications.
