Yes. Craig Labovitz (MERIT) has developed a RIPv2 for IPv6,
which some sites on this list have been testing.

Those quotes around real are very poignant.
Can we later this year have an interim draft
for aggregatable addresses? I would like to see it be
geographic addressing without all the details resolved:
Instead of Alain's "cores", your design team could
give us interim neutral interconnects, leaving
out for this cut how the "real" ones will manage internal
Just a wish,
