Various IPv6 extension headers have been standardised since the IPv6
standard was first published.  This document updates RFC 2460 to
clarify how intermediate nodes should deal with such extension
headers and with any that are defined in the future.  It also
specifies how extension headers should be registered by IANA, with a
corresponding minor update to RFC 2780.

This document is a product of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
