For the most part, i was trying to make it clear that I wasn't asking
about the fix in RFC 4443 from the point-of-view of "the ping-pong issue
is already fixed in RFC 4443... we don't need /127 prefixes!". (i.e.,
I'm not against /127 prefixes... actually, I support the idea).
But I'm still interested in knowing what's the downside of the fix in
RFC 4443 that I cited in my original post. Does it really kill performance?
