GSE/ESD (previsously known as 8+8) is an older work that is documented because of it's useful background info (we hope to turn it into an Info RFC so it doesn't get lost). The Aggregatable Unicast Address structure is partly the result of this work and much evolving thought.
So I would suggest looking at:
ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2374.txt Aggregatable addressing
http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipngwg-tla-assignment-05.txt TLA/NLA rules
http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipngwg-router-renum-04.txt Router Renumbering
and then ask some specific questions.
If I've missed your question, please say so.
