Summary:                                     The document is well written, and almost ready for publication. However, there are a few editorial nits that I ask
 the author to address.

Major Issues: None

Minor Issues: None

Editorial Issues:


Section 1 (Introduction):





In a few places the ‘BR’ abbreviation is used, but it is not enhanced until section 2. Please enhance on first occurrence in section 1.





In a few places the ‘BR’ abbreviation is used, but it is not enhanced until section 2. Please enhance on first occurrence in section 1.


The text says:


“o  To ensure that that the legacy users' IPv4 addresses remain

      visible to the nodes and applications.”




“This ensures that there is no loss of information; the end-user's IPv4

source address remains available to the application, allowing”


It may be obvious, but would it be possible to somehow make it more clear that the text is not (I assume) talking about the application running on the IPv4 node, but an application running in an IPv6 network?


In other parts of the document it is more clear. E.g. in section 3.1 the text says: “application running on the IPv6-only server”,



Section 6 (IANA Considerations):



Q6_1: Do we normally remove the section if there are no requests from IANA? Personally I prefer to keep the explicit

“This draft makes no request of the IANA.” sentence.
