I would like to know your oppinion on the initial starting point for a
practical addressing architecture:

|        | fe80::1/64    (the LL address-prefix)
| Router +--------------
|        | 2001:db8::1/64 (the address prefix configured on
+--------+                 this interface)

Teco and myself came up with this picture, thinking it may represent a
good starting point for planning a practical IPv6 addressing scheme for
ad-hoc networks.

I am interested to listen any kind of oppinion on this - is this good?
Can this lead to something good?  How?

Thanks in advance,
