This is a simple and straightforward document, fixing an omission in RFC 6275, which updated RFC 4861 without explicitly marking it as such,  and failed to create a registry to avoid conflicts. The content of the document looks fine, but there are several minor issues that I would recommend to be considered and discussed before approval and publication. 

Major issues:

Minor issues:

1. As this document fixes a problem created by RFC 6275 which was was not marked as updating RFC 4861, and did not create a registry to avoid conflicts, it looks like this RFC (if approved) should also update RFC 6275. 

2. Section 3 includes a reference to [IANA-TBD] which is not defined in the document. 

3. As the new registry contains one bit defined by RFC 6275, it seems that [RFC6275] should also be a Normative Reference. 

4. Section 4 - It would be good to capitalize Standards Action, and refer to RFC 8126 as reference (also to be added) 

Nits/editorial comments: 

1. The Abstract and the Introduction contain a sentence with broken syntax: 

'The purpose of this document is to request that IANA to create a new registry ...'

2. Several acronyms in the document are not explicitly expanded: ND, PIO, NDP
