Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Specification" currently has an IETF standards
status of Draft Standard, which is now an obsolete status. This status change
requests reclassifying it to Internet Standard.

      with widespread deployment and successful operational experience.

RFC4443 has been widely implemented:
          https://www.ipv6ready.org/db/index.php/public/?o=4

(2) There are no errata against the specification that would cause a
      new implementation to fail to interoperate with deployed ones.
RFC4443 has 4 errata, none of which would cause new interoperability
      problems.

(3) There are no unused features in the specification that greatly
      increase implementation complexity.

There are no unused features.

(4) If the technology required to implement the specification
      requires patented or otherwise controlled technology, then the
      set of implementations must demonstrate at least two independent,
      separate and successful uses of the licensing process.
