Thanks for these (ever so slightly belated) WGLC comments.
Hey, you were just trying to take unfair advantage of your time zone :-)
Among the shim6 documents still on our agenda as a WG is the
applicability document. The (currently expired) draft
draft-ietf-shim6-applicability-02.txt includes this consideration
regarding SHIM6 and SCTP, and also includes applicability comments
relating to interaction with other protocols (section 5).
I would like to propose that your comments are addressed in the related
current SHIM6 document activity on the topic of an applicability
statement, and, given that situation, there is no compelling case to
revise the protocol document to include this (and related) applicability
However, the applicability draft is not cited in the proto draft.
It's listed as a reference, but is not cited. That's going to
have to be fixed editorially anyway. I agree that the applicability
draft is the appropriate place to discuss this.
I trust that this is an acceptable approach to this consideration to you
and the WG and that we are still in a position to submit the protocol
document to the IESG as a Proposed Standard.
Indeed,it isn't a normative issue.

This note starts the WG Last Call for comments on the three "base"
Shim6 documents as Proposed Standards:
"Level 3 multihoming shim protocol"
One substantive comment. The need for some ULPs to bypass the
shim is mentioned in section 4.3, API Extensions, but there is
no reference to the need for SCTP to bypass the shim, which
is not an issue for the socket API. I think that needs to
be mentioned somewhere.
"Hash Based Addresses (HBA)"
"Failure Detection and Locator Pair
Exploration Protocol for IPv6
No substantive comments on these two.
