For those of you outside the U.S. (and, I suppose, parts of Europe), April 1
is known as April Fool's Day. People play practical jokes on each other;
some of them are rather elaborate and created just for April Fool's. If you
scan back through the RFC index, there are well over a dozen RFCs published
on April 1 through the years that are bogus - some of them pretty
sophisticated, and most of them fun (the transmission of IP packets over
avian carriers, updated with QOS, is one of my favorites.)
When you have an hour or so, take a look at these creative and fun
"Informational" or "Experimental" RFCs.

What fun! I've heard a lot about IPv5, but it's first time to see IPv9!
It seems that IPv6-IPv9 appeared as solutions to IPv4 address shortcoming,
as indicated IAB Routing and Addressing Task Force. Am I right ?
One quick question: Why IPv1-IPv3 left untouched ?

See RFCs 1606 and 1607.
They are dated 1 April. Hopefully that should give some idea :)
