[6bone] AAAA and A6 recent status?
% >rfc #2874 seem to suggest that AAAA records will "soon" disappear ; is the A6
% >record format the definitive one? If the 2874 considered as 'final' standard?
% AAAA is the final standard.
final is such a strong word. The current recommendation is:
draft-ietf-dnsext-ipv6-addresses-01.txt, which might become
an RFC. Even then, changes can and do occur. Its a pretty
safe bet that AAAA records will get you what you want, but
apps should be prepared to deal w/ A6 records, since they
do exist and show every likelyhood of remaining in the code.
