My point is that the IPv6 ND extension would not be of generic use on other IPv6 nets because of the lack of endpoint authentication.

That helps only the number of revisions issue; the point is that the work associated with this doc involves substantial effort for review. Anything that intensive IMO should involve the commitment of creating a BOF and WG as evidence there is sufficient interest.
