A stateless IPv4/IPv6 translator may receive ICMPv6 packets
containing non-IPv4-translatable addresses as the source.  These
packets should be passed across the translator as ICMP packets
directed to the IPv4 destination.  This document presents
recommendations for source address translation in ICMPv6 headers to
handle such cases.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
