The common use case that people discuss is cable. My impression is that
CableLabs has done a pretty good job of driving IPv6 adoption in cable
modems for DOCSIS 3.0. The authors being from APNIC, I would imagine
there is a billion person problem (or so) to be solved?
What I'd ask, therefore, is that the authors include in their
introduction answers to the following questions:
1. Should the address space be allocated to private networks? If so,
please give some examples of uses.
2. If the space is to be allocated for global reachability, could you
please provide a current estimate as to how much time is bought?
In addition, while I don't think the coding issues are all that
substantial, deployment issues could be sizable. Anyone planning to
make use of this address space because they have exhausted 10/8 should
CLEARLY be making plans to go to IPv6. Anyone expecting to avoid a
collision through the use of this space should be cautioned.
Also the document should be in the same class as RFC 1918, which is a
BCP and not a standard. If you proceed, you might want to consider
obsoleting 1918 in favor of an abbreviated replacement, as much of the
text in that document is dated.
