Technical Summary

   This note describes a framework for IPv4/IPv6 translation.  This is
   in the context of replacing NAT-PT, which was deprecated by RFC 4966,
   and to enable networks to have IPv4 and IPv6 coexist in a somewhat
   rational manner while transitioning to an IPv6 network.
   This document describes translation as one of the tools networks
   might use to facilitate coexistence and ultimate transition.
