"The IETF" as such does not exist, so my wording was a bit careless.
It's been discussed on the v6ops mailing list, and one of the authors of
the successor RFCs (Arifumi Matsumoto) seemed to favor the proposal to
drop Rule 9 (actually for both IPv4 and IPv6).  Currently, IETF activity
is mostly frozen due to IETF-71.  We'll see what happens afterwards.

Participation in the relevant WGs (v6ops and 6man, I think) is a good
idea if you care about IPv6, irrespective of this issue.
