The network operator and vendor community has clearly indicated that IPv6 header insertion is useful and required. This is notably the case when the entire journey of the packet remains in its source domain. In such a context, it does not matter where the extension header is inserted. The source domain may decide to place the IPv6 extension header insertion where it suits its best: at the source of the packet or at any midpoint within the source domain.
