6bone map change - new DIGITAL-CA/US tunnels

6bone drawing version 27:

	new tunnel from DIGITAL-CA/US to CISCO/US
	new tunnel from DIGITAL-CA/US to UNH/US
	new tunnel from DIGITAL-CA/US to DIGITAL-NH/US

I assume the tunnels are running as Jim has indicated this, but I would
still like to see ping data in these requests as a general rule, as well as
the RIPE data for each end of the tunnel.

Also, the following RIPE registry stuff needs to be added/fixed:

G6/FR  tunnel to digital is not full name and is mispelled
DIGITAL-NH/US  has no tunnel shown to DIGITAL-CA/US
CISCO/US has no tunnel shown to DIGITAL-CA/US

I will try to sweep the RIPE db at least once to see if all the tunnels are
listed properly.

Can you get the map updated to show the tunnels directly to Cisco, and
UNH-Bay-Digital via UNH too on the 6bone drawing for our new addition
Digital-CA, in addition to the G6/FR tunnel.  We are setting up to
distribute packets from S.E. Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, etc..).
The connection is more than just to G6/FR.  We are by passing other hubs
on purpose in the spirit of laizze-faire and to make this look like the
real Internet.  We have chosen to provide routes to nodes via Cisco,
UNH, and G6/FR hubs.

p.s. On routing protocols.  I think the next step after RIPv6 is OSPFv6.
Then on to IDRPv6 for exterior routing.  To that end I would like to
figure out at San Jose IETF the status of IDRPv6 from folks working on it.
If it still is not on target I will champion an effort with other
interested vendors to fund with real $$$$ a public domain implementation
vendors can use to get IDRPv6 up and running.  I think GATED Consortia
may be ahead of me and that is where the $$$ need to go.  I just don't know
right now.  The $$$ would include some bright people to work on the spec
too.  I would like to see a prototype of IDRPv6 on the 6bone in 1997.
I view it from an engineering perspective as a MUST SHIP CRITICAL
priority for IPv6 on the 6bone.
