Paul Duffy and I recently published draft-droms-6lo-ethertype-request-00.  The purpose of this document is to demonstrate IETF consensus for requesting an Ethertype to be used with IPv6 datagrams encoded according to RFC 4944/6282, in L2 protocols that have a protocol switch.

We'd like to move this document along quickly, because Wi-SUN Alliance would like to specify the Ethertype in the Wi-SUN FAN specification.  Please take a look at the document (it's barely over 3 pages, including all the boilerplate) and respond to the 6lo WG mailing list with comments.
