COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a hard time seeing the need for a generic UDP tunnel type (8) and also
specific instances of UDP tunneling such as Teredo (14). I think it is better
to go one way or another but not do both to avoid any confusion. In any case I
think RFC8085 *should not* be the sole reference for UDP tunneling as it does
not specify UDP tunneling but provides guidelines for designers of UDP based
tunneling mechanisms.
