I like privacy extensions - that's not the point.  The point is that
Fedora with NM is violating the RFC by removing deprecated addresses
while they are still in use, something that the kernel managed to get
right (why NM had to take over this management of them from the kernel,
and then get it wrong, I don't know).

I reported this a year ago to BZ but never got a single response.
