This note describes the changes necessary for IS-IS to route classes of IPv6 traffic that are defined by a source prefix and a destination prefix. This implies not routing "to a destination", but "traffic matching a classification tuple". The obvious application is egress routing - routing traffic using a given prefix to an upstream network that will not drop traffic using that prefix using BCP 38 filters.
