Re: Translation versus tunneling document
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Do us a favor; talk with Alain about his network to make sure that
you are solving the problem he is facing.
The big question is whether the double translation he proposes comes
up with functionally the same thing as the tunneled packet, and what
the tunnel goes between. The double translation is probably easier to
maintain operationally than an NxM set of tunnels if it works
correctly, and avoids the MTU discussion. Frankly, a massively
tunneled network is a lot like an MPLS network, and in MPLS there are
a set of tools for managing the network. Be careful what you ask for;
you might get it.

I've talked with Fred after the v6ops WG meeting this afternoon,

work in a document comparing the applicability of existing tunneling
protocols and a possible translation mechanism in different scenarios.
I think this will be useful to determine if we really need the
mechanism for all the cases or just for a small subset, making
development of that translation protocol.
I will try to get this done in the next couple of weeks, at least a
draft. If some other people is interested in working on this,
please let me
