Technical Summary This document specifies the architectural characteristics, expected behavior, textual representation, and usage of IPv6 addresses of different scopes. According to a decision in the IPv6 working group, this document intentionally avoids using the syntax and usage of unicast site-local addresses. Working Group Summary This document has been active in the IPv6 WG for a long time. There is strong consensus regarding the contents of this document and it is widely implemented. Most of the delay was caused by the site-local address issue. That issue has been resolved, and the concept of site-local unicast addressing has been removed from this document. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman.
