That is not what is reflected by snarks such as "everything is oh so IPv6 ready..."

So it's important that Marc is constantly applying pressure to make sure the problems are getting fixed.  And while Marc is showing what's broken, Fernando has well thought out ideas on how to update the standards.

I believe that's what I said.

Why does someone need to attend hours of security training talking about obscure fragmentation vulnerabilities?  The standards should be fixed so that the protocol is as plug and play as possible.  So in my view, Fernando and Marc are helping to ease the operational burden of IPv6.  By pushing for the right fixes it will improve the return on investment for our global network.

I've never disagreed with this.
