Abstract

This document describes IPv4 addressing dependencies in an attempt to clarify the necessary steps in re-designing and re-implementing specifications to become network address independent, or at least, to dually support IPv4 and IPv6. This transition requires several interim steps, one of them being the evolution of current IPv4 dependent specifications to a format independent of the type of IP addressing schema used. Hence, it is hoped that specifications will be re-designed and re-implemented to become network address independent, or at least to dually support IPv4 and IPv6.

Abstract

   This document describes IPv4 addressing dependencies in an attempt to

   clarify the necessary steps in re-designing and re-implementing

   specifications to become network address independent, or at least, to

   dually support IPv4 and IPv6.  This transition requires several

   interim steps, one of them being the evolution of current IPv4

   dependent specifications to a format independent of the type of IP

   addressing schema used.  Hence, it is hoped that specifications will

   be re-designed and re-implemented to become network address

   independent, or at least to dually support IPv4 and IPv6.

   To achieve that step, it is necessary to survey and document all IPv4

   dependencies experienced by current standards (Full, Draft, and

   Proposed) as well as Experimental RFCs.  Hence, this document

   describes IPv4 addressing dependencies that deployed IETF Application

   Area documented Standards may experience.
