Hi, folks,

After almost 7+ years of working on this topic, our internet-draft 
entitled Operational Implications of IPv6 Packets with Extension 
has been approved for publication as an IETF RFC.

I believe it iś of value for folks working in security and/or network 

Kudos to my co-authors for enduring the process, and to Nick Hilliard 
who did the last push to get this one approved.

    This document summarizes the operational implications of IPv6
    extension headers specified in the IPv6 protocol specification
    (RFC8200), and attempts to analyze reasons why packets with IPv6
    extension headers are often dropped in the public Internet.
