We have published a revision of the aforementioned I-D. It is available

This version hopefully does a better job about describing the problem,
and also, rather than focusing on a single solution, it describes three
possible alternative solutions, with pros and cons.

We'd like to receive feedback on this document, including feedback on
which of the possible solutions is deemed as the most appropriate.

Thanks so much!

Name:		draft-gont-6man-ipv6-universal-extension-header
Revision:	01
Title:		IPv6 Universal Extension Header
Document date:	2014-04-08
Group:		Individual Submission
Pages:		10

   This document analyzes a problem in the Uniform Format for IPv6
   Extension Headers specified in RFC 6564, which results in nodes not
   being able to process an IPv6 Header Chain if it contains an
   unrecognized IPv6 Extension Header that follows the aforementioned
   Uniform Format.  It analyzes the implications of the aforementioned
   problem, and discusses a number of possible solutions, including the
   specification of a new IPv6 Extension Header - the Universal
   Extension Header - that overcomes the aforementioned issues.

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
