Приложение B: Changes from RFC 3513
The following changes were made from RFC 3513, «IP Version 6 Addressing Architecture»:
The restrictions on using IPv6 anycast addresses were removed because there is now sufficient experience with the use of anycast addresses, the issues are not specific to IPv6, and the GROW working group is working in this area.
Deprecated the Site-Local unicast prefix. Changes include the following:
Removed Site-Local from special list of prefixes in Section 2.4.
Split section titled «Local-use IPv6 Unicast Addresses» into two sections, «Link-Local IPv6 Unicast Addresses» and «Site-Local IPv6 Unicast Addresses».
Added text to new section describing Site-Local deprecation.

Added clarification to Section 2.5 that nodes should make no assumptions about the structure of an IPv6 address.
Changed the text in Section 2.5.1 and Appendix A to refer to the Modified EUI-64 format interface identifiers with the
ubit set to one (1) as universal.

ubit set to one are unique.
