        The IETF IPNG WG home page can be found at:

        The decision regarding site-local was made during the San
Francisco IETF meeting and then later confirmed on the mailing lists
although there has been quite some debate over it all since then. IIRC
the SF IETF meeting was in April which would have been before 3513. The
WG is still trying to nail everything down as there are a number of
I-D's out but still some are calling for SL to be included to some
degree thus none have been able to work their way to becoming an RFC.

        If you have nothing to do for a couple days reading through the
hundreds of posts regarding SL can definately kill the time...

Without trying to find the mailing lists for the IPv6 working groups,
this must have been pretty recent. I just check up on RFCs every once
in a while and RFC 3513, dated April 2003, still talks about Site-Local.

RFC 3587, from this month, talks about losing Top Level Aggregators
and Next Level Aggregators, but that's something different.

I don't doubt you though, even though it's being deployed, IPv6 is far
from completely specified. The details still move around faster than
I'll be followoing. Heck, no one really has found a good way to use the
DIFSERV fields of IPv4 yet.
