The topic of operators dropping IPv6 packets containing extension
headers has been raised quite a few times on this list and elsewhere.

A month ago or so we published a document trying to summarize the

We're currently working on a revision of this document, and would like
to hear feedback from the working group regarding our document. e.g.,

* Did we get anything wrong?
* Is there anything missing?

Or, if you like the document and agree with its content, that's also
interesting feedback to have.
