We live in an age of information overload, conciseness is a virtue!
While I agree that some parts of the doc could possibly be a bit
shorter, I still think the document is about the right length. The
main meat is about 15 pages. The question at this point is, I guess,
whether all the appendices are useful enough. At least the text in
the main body is required when a reader starts to think "but, I really
want to block [foo]. Why shouldn't I just go ahead and do so?"
Appendix A provides the detailed analysis: discarding this would be
possible, but the result is people have to reinvent the logic sometime
in the future.
I can't see a very simple way to add a *brief* conclusion to the
abstract/intro. What I have done is to add a paragraph pointing
directly to the recommendations for those who think they know about (or
don't care about) ICMPv6 and what security attacks might eventuate.
That said, maybe it wouldn't hurt to put some conclusions to the
abstract, introduction, a new section or call them out more explicitly
from the existing text.
