I would like to propose that draft-bormann-6lowpan-ghc-04 be adopted as
a WG item.  I think that 6lowpan should adopt it, but I'm willing to
discuss alternatives.

Some analysis in 2011 showed that even a modest application of GHC
to ROLL RPL control messages resulted in sufficient compression to
make ROLL RPL packets regularly fit into a single 802.15.4 payload.
