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.
