 Hey Christian, looked @ it with one eye & since the SNAP size problem 
 for ipv6 looks rather ugly to me, a question would be whether you 
 considered use of RFC3927 to resolve the 'no ipv4 on interface' problem 
 and just use the original draft for isis over v4 (in case when no ipv4 
 is assigned on interface, otherwise the '99 draft would work fine 
 out-the-box). RFC3927 should take care of the 'same subnet' check as 
 well that as far I remember is in all major implementations (since it's 
 all on same /16).

 Just random musing given that all the solutions suggested for the ipv6 
 in SNAP in the draft look a tad of a round peg in a square hole to me 

 Yes, I know HomeNet is all about IPv6.
