And then those link local addresses are visible beyond their
local link. For some that is a problem. For others not.

All of which is irrelevant to the matter in the subject line,
where the decision is long (though longer would have been
better) made. Re-hashing the last N years debate gets no one

Right, LFN is a "Local Fixed Node", non-routing endpoint.

So you agree that LFN--MR--MR--LFN _is_ a multi-hop network?

Yes, that too is a multi-hop network, I agree.

Between each MR only link-local addresses are used.

What do you think?
