I've read through the document as well as (most of) the mailing list
discussion, and I don't see anything that directly addresses one
possible issue here.
That issue is the exclusive use of IPv4 or IPv6 on Packet CS. Why
must it be exclusive? The first four bits of the datagram tell you
conclusively whether you're looking at IPv4 or IPv6, so why is strict
Can't both run on the same link?
For that matter, why was this same segregation standardized for
Ethernet? I always wondered about that.
