While extension headers are not used in constrained networks, they are still used in some IoT networks.
Therefore, a review from those not-so-constrained IoT devices is important.
Please note that this is for the final step, i.e., the IESG telechat with a deadline of Tuesday 20th of April
Thank you in advance

I have reviewed the Internet draft as part of IOT Directorate.

Here are some of my comments. Please treat them as any other comment.

I have looked at an IOT implementation and it appears to be limiting sizes of
ipv6 extension headers and other IOT implementations appear not to support
extension headers.

I believe that this Internet Draft explains the issues around IPv6 Extension
headers extensively.
