RE: new draft on IPv6 CPE router available for review
Thanks for everyone's proposals and ideas, but we are not seriously
looking at ideas from individual folks - it's not proving to be very
productive. If you are a DSL or FIOS person, please send your proposals
to David Miles who can collate all proposals and he will also work with
Mark Townsley who works on DSL. We are working with David Miles and have
already incorporated his requests from DSL folks in our next version of
the draft. We don't need any proposals or ideas for cable industry since
we have that covered ourselves.
Any other industry will be dealt by us on a case by case basis.

I must explain more clearly my proposal.
For the model where WAN interface only acquires a link-local address, I
see two options for the interface which will be assigned a global IPv6
address sub-delegated from IA_PD via DHCPv6 :
- If there is a logical LAN bridge, which is always up even if the LAN
interfaces attached to it are individualy down, CPE will use the bridge
which will be assigned such a global IPv6 address.
These is no need to add a loopback interface.
- Else the CPE router will use a Loopback interface which will be
assigned such a global IPv6 address.
