I hesitate to suggest this because I'll probably turn into a pillar of
salt at some point for harping on it. however...

Getting new extension headers generally parsed is a high bar to get
over. That said within one domain of control you might be able to fit a
subset of the information you're looking to carry into the  20 bits
available in flow label. 6437 probably provides enough cover/instruction
to allow for that.
