This document describes a protocol for asking an IPv6 node to supply
certain network information, such as its hostname or fully-qualified
domain name. IPv6 implementation experience has shown that direct
queries for a hostname are useful, and a direct query mechanism for
other information has been found useful in serverless environments
and for debugging.
