Is that better?


A note to reviewers 

It looks like the initial terminology "node-local" for multicast IPv6 addresses
introduced in [1] more than 20 years ago has since changed to "interface-local"

   -  Multicast scope changes:
         o  Changed name of scope value 1 from "node-local" to
         o  Defined scope value 4 as "admin-local"
