Designing IPv6 network guidelines?

	to stabilize, try to remove tunnels and move to IPv6 over leased
	line (or IPv4/v6 dual stack connectivity over leased line).  it works
	for me.

	you don't even need site-locals for point to point links.  they just
	work fine with link-local address.  all routing protocols should run
	fine with p2p with link-local address only.

	if /35 runs out, country-wide operator can ask for more to RIR.
	/35 was assigned from RIR to facilitate slow-start.  country-wide
	operator should be able to grow into /29 sub TLA without renumber,
	then become a proper TLA (/16) - this is what I understand at this

	if you use something other than /48, you will make renumber harder
	for customers (universities).
