It means that there are additional errors.
First, it is not an API issue that, if multihoming can be handled
by the transport layer like TCP case, you can keep the current API.
Second, it is trivially easy to add a new address family to the socket
API to pass multiple addresses to it.

What does not exist in IPv6 is useful definition of autoconfiguration.

It is merely that it is very hard to operate IPv6 autoconfiguration
in a useful way.
But, that is not my problem.

Not at all.
Instead, mapping between a phone number as an ID and a phone number
as a locator is secure.
