This is a great document. I will certainly read it again, and I may  
update my review as a result.

I haven't particularly been looking for editorial issues; none stood  
out.

I noticed that whilst some detail was provided well, other details  
were missing (which XMPP clients were used, for instance - I'm  
reasonably sure that while many support IPv6, some do not).

The choice of games seems odd as well - while Rome: Total War remains  
a popular RTS for a number of reasons, it's also very old. Crysis is  
comparitively old, too, as is Battelfield (now up to its second  
sequel). It'd be interesting to see whether more modern games  
actually support IPv6, in particular for LAN play, given that Win7  
typically acquires LAN IPv6 addresses.  I'll see if I can find out a  
little more information here.

Overall, though, this could be published as-is, and would be a  
valuable addition to the Informational corpus.

Dave.
