Hosts and applications may benefit from learning if an IPv6 address
is synthesized and if NAT64 and DNS64 are present in a network.  This
document analyzes all proposed solutions (known at the time of
writing) for communicating whether the synthesis is taking place,
what address format was used, and what IPv6 prefix was used by the
NAT64 and DNS64.  These solutions enable both NAT64 avoidance and
local IPv6 address synthesis.  The document concludes by recommending
the standardization of the approach based on heuristic discovery.

This document is a product of the Behavior Engineering for Hindrance Avoidance Working Group of the IETF.
