See below.

Very short though.

I personally would rather see a "MUST drop packets containing RH0".



A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

	Title		: Deprecation of Type 0 Routing Headers in IPv6
	Author(s)	: J. Abley
	Filename	: draft-jabley-ipv6-rh0-is-evil-00.txt
	Pages		: 13

   The functionality provided by IPv6's Type 0 Routing Header can be
   exploited in order to perform remote network discovery, to bypass
   firewalls and to achieve packet amplification for the purposes of
   generating denial-of-service traffic.  This document updates the IPv6
   specification to deprecate the use of IPv6 Type 0 Routing Headers, in
   the light of these security concerns.
