Is any one interested in having a shim6 meeting in Beijing?

Given the chance, we would like the opportunity to demo a variant of
shim6 using names (FQDNs) rather than a pseudo addresses.
This way, the connection is not dependent on whether or not the first IP
address becomes revoked or not.
Also, we have a mechanism to improve robustness for the case when both
nodes move at the same time and both loose working locators to each
other (made possible due to the changes).

In short
* Binding to names rather than pseudo IPs for session continuity
* Robustness using a recovery mechanism for when the set of locators = 0

If there is interest, we'll also writeup a draft describing the changes
and mechanisms more in detail, for now this is the available material.
Please see section 6 for the shim6 specific parts.

The aim is to break up this document into two or three, where the
mobility part (shim6) would stand as its own document.
