Sounds good, but everyone's probably not so privileged.

That said, pointers to gory implementation details (if anyone actually cares
to share, seems like it's needed though), relevant BCPs, etc. would likely
help educate everyone facing these challenges.

Maybe it's too soon for them to exist.  I'm sure a lot of people had similar
questions when TCP/IP first replaced NCP.  ;-)  I can Google and find
answers to anything (too many in fact) IPv4, not quite with IPv6...yet.

More than objecting to the question, I'd been looking forward to real
answers to this thread.  FWIW your insight actually helped me a bit, I'm
hoping there's more.
