This document adds IPv6 support to Traversal Using Relays around NAT
(TURN).  IPv6 support in TURN includes IPv4-to-IPv6, IPv6-to-IPv6,
and IPv6-to-IPv4 relaying.  This document defines the REQUESTED-
attribute allows a client to explicitly request the address type the
TURN server will allocate (e.g., an IPv4-only node may request the
TURN server to allocate an IPv6 address).  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
