 I have reviewed this document as part of the Operational directorate's 

ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG. 

 These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the 

operational area directors.

Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any 

other last call comments.

Summary: This document follows in the venerable tradition of IP-over-foo 

documents, none of which concern themselves with operational issues. 

Based on that precedent, it is ready to go.

However, this document is tied closely to RFC 6775, Neighbor Discovery 

Optimization for IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Networks 

(6LoWPANs). RFC 6775 identifies a number of deployment and configuration 

options. Table 3 of that RFC is a starting point, but other choices can 

be found by searching on "MAY" and (mostly with false positives) 

"configur". Have these been examined to ensure that they are orthogonal 

to the operation of IPv6 over G.9959? If there is interaction, an 

Operational Considerations section may be called for in the present 

draft, indicating applicability of particular choices to IPv6 over G.9959.
