Shim6 is not 8+8; the address changes take place in the end system.
There is not as yet any technical reason why this should be so. And if
shim6 is to work with ULP's like UDP, then there isn't any good
technical reason why the connection between ULP and the shim must be on
the same host.
If a technical reason comes along to restrict shim6 to having to be on
same host, fine. If it doesn't, no reason to be arbitrary.
Agreed. But I don't think you can look on it as an intermediate system,
unknown to the host, which was the basis of 8+8. It will be more like
an offload processor, with the stack split above the shim.
