Folks,

The GHC draft has been around for quite some time, and seems like a good general solution for increasing the efficiency of ICMPv6, routing (RPL...) and other headers. For example in the ROLL meeting today concern over the fragmentation of messages was expressed. Could we consider making this a working group document? Do people think this would be a solid starting point for solving this problem, and is there interest to work on, implement and use it? I personally do think it would be useful.
