          IPv6 tokenized interface identifier support is used for
          assigning well-known host-part addresses to nodes whilst
          still obtaining a global network prefix from Router adver-
          tisements. The primary target for tokenized identifiers are
          server platforms where addresses are usually manually con-
          figured, rather than using DHCPv6 or SLAAC. By using tok-
          enized identifiers, hosts can still determine their network
          prefix by use of SLAAC, but more readily be automatically
          renumbered should their network prefix change [1]. Tokenized
          IPv6 Identifiers are described in the draft [1]: <draft-
