All,

With apologies for my tardy reply, I also support this work.

It is optional to implement or deploy, but it can be very useful
as a way to minimise enterprise network operational costs
and also to facilitate a smoother transition to dual-stack
operation - and eventual IPv6-only operation.

The use case described in the I-D is the one that arose from
my clients and that motivated me to talk with Acee, Joel, 
and others about the operational value of being able to deploy
OSPFv3 over IPv4 - as part of an operating cost reduction and
IPv6 transition plan.

Yours,
