Thank you. Please note that this is the _first_ shot at this scheme, so

The short answer is nobody, but this requires an explanation a lot
longer that belongs on the 6bone mailing list; this allocation is valid
for two different protocols, GFN and MHAP. I ccd your question to the
ipv6mh mailing list and I will address it there; if anyone answers it
please take the 6bone out of the cc field.
