Hi Vidya,

The following comment has been addressed already as part of Ted
Hardie's comments. A new API will  be provided to select/bind the
preferred source address before connect().

I'm passing along a comment from one of our developers.  Sorry, I have
not closely read the draft myself. But, if more clarification is needed,
I'll be happy to get more information.

In section 13, the draft describes a procedure applications should
follow in case they require to use the address according to the
selection preferences specified (they should not communicate with
'wrong' address and fail). The procedure requires the application to do
a 'connect()' in step 3. The application may not even want to connect
(may be a TCP application) in case it is not getting a non-preferred
address. There should be a procedure described for such applications
