I was also thinking if any other MIP related scenario is worth
considering here, e.g., MIP HA inside vs outside the NAT64. MIPv4 and
MIPv6 protocols, however, are entirely incompatible so MIPv4 to MIPv6
translation is not a realistic option as far as I can tell. My
inclination is to just forget about Mobile IP and all its versions and
denominations for now.
