Updates: 4861 [in RFC header]


RFC4861 Section 6.2.1 says that
"MaxRtrAdvInterval ..MUST be no less than 4 seconds"
"MinRtrAdvInterval...MUST MUST be no less than 3 seconds"

RFC6275 Section 7.5. changes those requirements to:
"Routers supporting mobility SHOULD be able to be configured with a
smaller MinRtrAdvInterval value and MaxRtrAdvInterval value to allow
sending of unsolicited multicast Router Advertisements more often.
The minimum allowed values are:

o MinRtrAdvInterval 0.03 seconds

o MaxRtrAdvInterval 0.07 seconds
so it should be flagged as a formal update to RFC4861.
Deviation from RFC 4861 are allowed by its section 6.2.1:
" The default values for some of the variables listed below may be
overridden by specific documents that describe how IPv6 operates over
different link layers."
