FYI. The intent is to discuss this on the IETF v6ops wg list
But comments will be appreciated, regardless of the specific channel
(whether on this list, off-list, etc.)

In the aforementioned document
we have tried to do at least three things:
1) Look at what we have and try to discuss things from an architectural
2) Analyze the implications of #1 (whether operations, security,
3) Find missing gaps that currently prevent us from fully leveraging
Part of what we've found as doing #3 above is that:
* There are shortcomings associated with the current APIs that prevent
better usage of IPv6 addresses
* Multi-router/multi-prefix routing seems to be broken.
RFC8028 would be a fundamental starting point in the right
direction... but I believe there's more to do in this area.
In that light, we'd like to hear further comments on our document. And,
in particular, we're interested to hear if :
* there are any operational implications of IPv6 addressing that we
have missed, or,
* there's anything related to IPv6 addressing that you consider to
be currently broken or problematic, that is missing in our I-D.
Thoughts on the current contents of the I-D are, of course, also very
