I would like to suggest: add explicitely that the practical addressing 
model should work at least with manual and static routes.  And that the 
practical addressing model should not be preconditioned by the use of 
OLSR nor DYMO in the ad-hoc network.

Also suggest: specifically mention which link-layers are being 
considered for ad-hoc networks.  I personally consider 802.11, 802.15.4, 
wired Ethernet, USB and eventually 802.16.  If anybody else considers 
other link-layers please mention them.

> Description of Working Group: 
>  
> In order to communicate among themselves, ad hoc nodes (refer to RFC 
> 2501) need to configure their network interface(s) with local addresses 
> that are valid within an ad hoc network. Ad hoc nodes may also need to 
> configure globally routable addresses, in order to communicate with 
> devices on the Internet. From the IP layer perspective, an ad hoc 
> network presents itself as a L3 multi-hop network formed over a 
> collection of links. 
>  
> The main purpose of the AUTOCONF WG is to describe the addressing model 
> for ad hoc networks and how nodes in these networks configure their 
> addresses. It is required that such models do not cause problems for ad 
> hoc-unaware parts of the system, such as standard applications running 
> on an ad hoc node or regular Internet nodes attached to the ad hoc 
> nodes. This group's effort may include the development of new protocol 
> mechanisms, should the existing IP autoconfiguration mechanisms be found 
> inadequate. However, the first task of the working group is to describe 
> one practical addressing model for ad hoc networks. 
>  
> Once this sole work item is completed, the group can be rechartered to 
> work on additional issues. 
>  
> Goals and Milestones: 
>  
> Apr 2009 Submit initial draft on address configuration in ad hoc networks
> Sep 2009 Submit address configuration draft to IESG as Informational or 
> close WG
