I have been selected as the Routing Directorate reviewer for this draft. The
Routing Directorate seeks to review all routing or routing-related drafts as
they pass through IETF last call and IESG review, and sometimes on special
request. The purpose of the review is to provide assistance to the Routing ADs.
For more information about the Routing Directorate, please see ​

Although these comments are primarily for the use of the Routing ADs, it would
be helpful if you could consider them along with any other IETF Last Call
comments that you receive, and strive to resolve them through discussion or by
updating the draft.

IETF LC End Date: date-if-known
Intended Status: copy-from-I-D

        This document is basically ready for publication, but has nits that
        should be considered prior to publication.

        I found the draft concise and clear. It was readable and readily

Major Issues:
        No major issues found

Minor Issues:
        No minor issues found.

         section 2: “...receive and save such mapping information also.” seems
         a bit stilted  and I would say “also receive and save such mapping

         section 3.1 "populate the information of sender's IP/MAC in its ARP
         table”. Do the authors really mean "ARP table" if the information was
         learned by ND? i.e. its clear that the authors are referring to the
         local IP/MAC address table, but the previous text tends to associated
         ARP with IPv4 and ND with IPv6. Perhaps “AARP/ND table” ?
