resource records for 64-bit Extended Unique Identifier (EUI64
The EUI64 resource record is used to represent IEEE Extended Unique
Identifiers used in various layer-2 networks, ethernet for example.
EUI64 addresses SHOULD NOT be published in the public DNS.
RFC7043 describes potentially severe privacy implications resulting
from indiscriminate publication of link-layer addresses in the DNS.
The available methods are those inherited from the base class augmented
by the type-specific methods defined in this package.
Use of undocumented package features or direct access to internal data
structures is discouraged and could result in program termination or
other unpredictable behaviour.
address The address field is a 8-octet layer-2 address in network byte order.
The presentation format is hexadecimal separated by ``-''.
