Technical Summary This specification defines an optional mechanism to allow exclusion of one specific prefix from a delegated prefix set when using DHCPv6- based prefix delegation. The new mechanism updates RFC 3633. Working Group Summary This document received a thorough review by the WG. Many comments were made, and several revisions done. The process was amicable and seems to have satisfied all participants. Document Quality The protocol is required by the latest 3GPP GPRS specification, but the authors are not aware of any specific implementations yet. We would expect to see these implementations appearing in cellular data devices that do IPv6 tethering, which is a relatively new sort of application.
