Section 16 says:
[RFC3513] Hinden, R. and S. Deering, "Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Addressing Architecture", RFC 3513, April 2003.
It should say:
[RFC4291] Hinden, R. and S. Deering, "IP Version 6 Addressing Architecture", RFC 4291, February 2006.
Unfortunately, Section 1 (first paragraph) and Section 11
of RFC 4607 refer to the previous IPv6 Address Architecture
document, RFC 3513, that has been superseded by RFC 4291 (February 2006).
At the time of document approval for 4607, 4291 had not been published and the authors needed to make a normative reference to an RFC and not to an I-D.
However, this is not an issue because anyone tracking the reference to 3513 will find that it has been obsoleted by 4291 and will read the correct document.
