Hi Martin,

I think it would benefit this discussion if we could learn more about these use cases.
In RFC 4944, the “Mesh Header” definitely was meant for mesh-under; we even have a section called

  11.  Frame Delivery in a Link-Layer Mesh*)

to discuss the use of the Mesh Header in forwarding adaptation layer packets between link-layer entities.  But that of course doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to make good use of the Mesh Header — I’d like to learn more about those.

Grüße, Carsten

*) The short forms “mesh-under” and “route-over” weren’t as much in use in 2007, so this is a long form trying to say “mesh-under”.
