The general format of Global Unicast addresses is described in Section 2.5.4. Unicast Some special-purpose subtypes of Global addresses that contain embedded IPv4 addresses (for the purposes of IPv4-IPv6 interoperation) are described in Section 2.5.5. Future specifications may redefine one or more sub-ranges of the Global Unicast space for other purposes, but unless and until that happens, implementations must treat all addresses that do not start with any of the above-listed prefixes as Global Unicast addresses. 2.5. Unicast Addresses IPv6 unicast addresses are aggregatable with prefixes of arbitrary bit-length, similar to IPv4 addresses under Classless InterDomain Routing. There are several types of unicast addresses in IPv6, in particular, Global Unicast, site-local unicast (depreca...
