Dear Authors,

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 with the intent of improving the 

operational aspects of the IETF drafts. Comments that are not addressed 

in last call may be included in AD reviews during the IESG review. 

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

other last call comments.

Document Reviewed - Host address availability recommendations

Link to Document -


The document is focused on a  recommendation to provide hosts 

(generally) with multiple IPv6 addresses and remove the need for 

overhead needed for a host to be able to attain additional addresses 

(i.e. provisioning cycles or special requests).  The document stresses 

the limitations that can arise with lack of multiple IPv6 addresses 

available to a host, and explores related topics around the number of 

addresses needed/desired, NAT challenges if used, and options for 

providing multiple addresses.

General Comments and Feedback:

The previous version (-05) was reviewed and commended on March 3, 2016. 

The current version of the document (-06) was reviewed for incrementally.

The current version of the document has made the changes recommended to 

the satisfaction  of this reviewer.

No new recommendations are made in this version's review.

The document is quite valuable and should proceeded for IETF processing.
