This memo describes the service mechanism for entering a delegation
of DNS servers that provide reverse lookup of 6to4 IPv6 addresses
into the 6to4 reverse zone file.  The mechanism is based on a
conventional DNS delegation service interface, allowing the service
client to enter the details of a number of DNS servers for the
delegated domain.  In the context of a 6to4 reverse delegation, the
client is primarily authenticated by its source address used in the
delegation request, and is authorized to use the function if its IPv6
address prefix corresponds to an address from within the requested
6to4 delegation address block.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.
