I've recently published an ID (see below), which aims at identifying the requirements to deploy IPv6 unmanaged networks, from an ISP point of view. This work encompasses topics that are (could be) addressed in the ipv6, zeroconf WG and also in the current zerouter discussions. Moreover, though v6ops appears in the title, I'm now convinced (after the interim meeting resolutions) that this work doesn't fit in the mould of this WG.
Nevertheless, this ID intends to identify the requirements which could lead to the definition of new protocols, mechanisms or BCP in the aforementioned context. As it is a first shot that needs to be completed/commented, any feedback will be very welcome, if it is considered of interest for any of the WG or mailing list quoted above.

Title : ISP requirements for IPv6 unmanaged networks

This document proposes to identify the elementary network functions required to automatically deploy an IPv6 home network, i.e. with the minimum (and ideally not a single) intervention from any administrator or any user. The next generation Internet Protocol, IPv6, is expected to being deployed in environments such as homes and SOHOs. However, most of the people making use of the Internet at home don't have enough knowledge to set up on their own the network and services. Therefore, this document exposes the requirements necessary to ease such a deployment, from an ISP point of view.
