Summary: This document is nearly ready for publication as a Standards
(The following may well be a non-issue.)
In the revision of the ietf-inet-types, the patterns for the new
ip4-address-no-zone and ipv6-address-no-zone are drastically simplified
from the ipv4-address and ipv6-address patterns. The new
ipv4-address-no-zone allows any sequence of decimal digits an periods,
while the original was carefully defined as dotted quads of 0..255.
Similarly, te ipv6-address-no-zone allows any arbitrary sequence of hex
digits and colons. The original patterns were very careful to match
rules for validity. Is there a reason for the change.
