It was our intention to write a charter that limits the v6ops
WG to work on the minimal required set of IPv6 transition
tools/mechanisms, and Itojun and I plan to be fairly conservative
about enforcing the requirements of the charter in this area.
It is our goal for v6ops to primarily focus on the operational
and security issues that arise in the deployment of IPv6, not on
anticipating transition issues and developing a transition toolkit.
This does not mean that we won't standardize any new transition
tools. However, we will only standardize a new tool if it solves
a well-defined, general IPv6 deployment problem that cannot be
satisfactorily addressed using other means (such as existing
transition tools and/or operational practices).
The IETF may also develop transition tools for IPv6 deployment
problems related to specific application and/or transport protocols,
but that work would be done in the proper WGs/areas, not within
