I have authored an Internet-Draft.

For those among you who aren't breathless fans of internet protocol development, an I-D is the larval form of an RFC, which in turn is an open specification for how some aspect of the internet works. If it helps, you can picture it as a sad little rolled-up piece of anthropomorphic paper, sitting on the steps of the Internet Engineering Systems Group and singing:
    I'm just a draft
    Yes I'm only a draft
    And if the working group achieves rough consensus
    Then I'll progress to IETF and they'll talk about me
    And send me back to the author for a revision or three
    But someday I'll be an RFC
    At least I hope I won't get the shaft
    'Cause today I am still just a draft

The thing I wrote is a clarification of a minor ambiguity in RFC 3315, which defines DHCP for IPv6. I'm not sure if it'll ever become an RFC or just be rolled into an update for 3315, but whatever. It's got my name on it. Bow down before me, lesser nerds!
