As fc00:0db8::/32 is from within the existing but albeit unused portion of ULA prefix, any future use of fc00::/8 will need to specifically exclude it. I think exceptions to the normal case are better to avoid because they're another thing to remember, program as an exception case and therefore a prone to errors etc.

I think it would be better to specify a documentation ULA prefix that has the nearly the properties as conventional ULAs, but doesn't fall within fc00::/7 (perhaps fe::/7 or something within it?). The only differences would be statements about no forwarding, no accepting routes etc.

Ultimately though, I think it is fundamentally impossible to prevent something silly like using documentation prefixes on a production network, unless you use actually invalid IPv6 prefixes. The only way I can think of to do that would be by doing things such as adding invalid hexadecimal 'g-z' numbers into the example prefixes. I'm not sure I like the idea, although it might cause people who get tripped up on it to go back and think some more about what they're doing and put more effort into getting it right.

Mark.
