Hi Alex,

As far as I know, you are the first person that came up with problems using
a loopback interface for globally unique addresses / host prefixes (/128,
/32) for routers. Please provide good argumentation, otherwise we follow the
already accepted practice in the routing community, also documented in
RFC5375 (and others, e.g. RFC3484).

Maybe you should post this in v6ops, not in Autoconf.

Teco.
