Interface identifiers in IPv6 unicast addresses are used to identify
interfaces on a link.  They are required to be unique within a
subnet.  Several RFCs have specified interface identifiers or
identifier ranges that have a special meaning attached to them.  An
IPv6 node autoconfiguring an interface identifier in these ranges
will encounter unexpected consequences.  Since there is no
centralized repository for such reserved identifiers, this document
aims to create one.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
