> in you internetdrafts archive... posted today.

For those who do not understand the IETF secret handshake,
this document can be found at the following URL.

It is an update of RFC 3177 so you really should google
for that RFC and read it before you read this draft.
People working on new routing/multihoming  models should 
also take an interest in this RFC because of the statement:

   RFC3177 suggested that some multihoming approaches (e.g., GSE) might
   benefit from having a fixed /48 boundary. This no longer appears to
   be a significant issue. There is no such requirement coming out of
   the IETF multi6 or shim6 efforts.

The reference to GSE is to an early proposal that separated
the IPv6 address into a routing identifier and an end-system

Cynical people might see this as an IETF attempt to block
the efforts of people working on new routing/multihoming
