So there might be something missing here in regards to zero-checksum in UDP
when using IPv6. So Section 3.1 in RFC 7510 discusses this for MPLS over UDP
and have some considerations that needs to be done if one are intending to use
zero checksum. To me it appears that DETNET flows can not be guaranteed to
always fulfill these, and in case you think you can motivate it should probably
be stated explicitly and normatively allow it. So if it can't be guaranteed to
fulfill these requirements then the next question exists: Do the possibility to
use zero-checksum for this flow become something the control plane needs to
signal it?
