We have published a revision of our IETF Internet-Draft "IPv6 Addressing 
Considerations". It is available at: 

It discusses a lot of practical considerations regarding IPv6 
addressing, so we'd love to hear from you if there's any that we missed 
or that you think we got wrong.


    IPv6 addresses can differ in a number of properties, such as scope,
    stability, and intended usage type.  This document analyzes the
    impact of these properties on aspects such as security, privacy,
    interoperability, and network operations, with the goal of providing
    guidance about IPv6 address usage.  Additionally, it identifies
    challenges and gaps that currently prevent systems and applications
    from leveraging the increased flexibility and availability of IPv6
