Dear Mr. Dave,

I’m Younghwan Choi (author of ipv6-over-nfc). I’m working on reflecting the 
comments of you as well as NFC forum.
First of all, I really appreciate your feedback. There were a lot of 
grammatical mistakes. I think you did really hard work for this.
Almost all comments are editorial and reflected. However, I need to resolve two 
comments of you about NFC link’s short lifetime.

1.     About short lifetime,
Actually, NFC technologies are from RFID technologies. And the applications and 
usecases are from single touch-approach.
For example, ID checking, payment, and so on. In those cases, the link lifetime 
of NFC has extremely short. However, if a user attaches a NFC device for a long 
time on purpose, this is not a case of short lifetime. For this, do you think I 
have to put something more into the next version of ipv6-over-nfc document? 
Then, for example, random values instead of padding ‘0’ in iid generation. How 
do you think about this?

2.     About iid lasting in multi-touch
Basically, NFC devices use logical 6-bit address. And the logical address is 
not made in fixed number but random or temporary number. If so, the case of the 
same iid repeatedly using in multi-touch of NFC devices does not happen.

Thanks a lot for you feedback.
Best regards,
Younghwan Choi

제목 : [6lo] Comments on draft-ietf-6lo-nfc-04

At last IETF, I took an action item to review draft-ietf-6lo-nfc-04.
A PDF copy with my marked up comments/suggestions is now at
(Lots of grammatical corrections, for example.)

The main technical comment is that there’s nothing in the document that
guarantees that the link lifetime is short.  E.g. if you leave your phone within
10cm of your laptop, what prevents the link from lasting indefinitely?
The IID generation mechanism of padding with a fixed prefix is really
bad and needs to be replaced unless there’s something that enforces that
a link cannot last for more than a tiny amount of time.
