I still find the description of the example in section 5 unclear. The syntax in this passage is tortured: An address could be acquired through the DHCPv6 IA_NA option (which does not include a prefix length), or through manual configuration (if no prefix length is specified). The host incorrectly assumes an invented prefix is on-link. This invented prefix typically is a /64 that was written by the developer of the API as a "default" prefix length when a length isn't specified. This may cause the API to seem to work in the case of a network interface initiating SLAAC, however it can cause connectivity problems in NBMA networks. What is the API referred to in the example? The changes to the word "deprecate" and the new section on changes to RFC 4861 satisfy my comments on those details.

I support Lars' DISCUSS about the need to include mandatory 2119 boilerplate.
