Hi Alejandro,

Thanks for taking the time to read the I-D.  The goal of the I-D is
lift restrictions.  David Thaler suggested that since the
has fewer restriction on its use, it is possible for solutions to
overlap and cause problems on a host that has both solutions.  For
example, if a host has both a DS-lite and 464XLAT capability, and both
are active at the same time and both are assuming the full can be used, this will cause a problem since the host
will have 2 connected routes to the same place.

To avoid this scenario of overlapping space (in the unlikely event a
host has 2 active IPv6 transition scenarios), the text you quoted was
added.  The text simply says "be smart" ... don't use overlapping
addresses on a host and cause yourself a problem.

That said, i find it perfectly reasonable, as you suggest, to take the and create 2 /30s, 1 for DS-lite and the other for
464XLAT... if you must have this ability.  The common Android solution
for this is to just use, only 1 IPv4 address is needed
for 464XLAT to function on Android
