I feel that a brief digression might help to prolong this discussion.

One way to disagree is about IP address family.

If I remember correctly, nothing (else) in 5321/2 requires a v6-only host to understand anything about v4. Running a v6-only host is stupid at this point, perhaps slightly less stupid in five years, but even so I don't think the next RFCs should feature an IPv4 requirement for address literals, and nothing for the main parts of the protocols.
