> I think the context reference (for common IPv6 prefix) is very useful and should be a part of the main set of rules. On the other hand, I am not sure how useful the back reference facility is going to be.

Hmm, interesting.  All the examples in the draft (except for the one in figure 6, which does not compress that well) make use of back references.  They are a major contributor to the compression factors achieved.  On the other hand, I have no examples that make use of context references yet, because the pcaps I have lack information about the context in use.  Do you have examples?
