Draft of "what is the 6bone"

>> The 6BONE is an outgrowth of the IETF IPng project that resulted in the

>To avoid flame wars, I would slightly rewrite this sentence:
> The 6BONE is an independent outgrowth of the IETF IPng project that
> resulted in the creation of the IPv6 protocols intended eventually to
> replace the current Internet network layer protocols known as IPv4.
>(Reasons: 1. remove a possible implication that this is an IETF activity
> 2. remove assertion that v6 *will* replace v4)
>The rest is just fine, but it leaves open the question "Who is
>the 6BONE?" We could add
> The 6BONE is currently an informal collaborative project
> covering North America, Europe and Japan.
I like this too.
>(Incidentally, Jun, maybe you should contact the guys at KEK?)
