Was this really a standard at the time? I do not remember this far
back, but I was under the impression that there were only proposals
on the table, and after discussion with the IETF the eventual standard
came to be what it is today.

How does this relationship show up on the wire? I.e., are the bits
any different if a packet is sent over the virtual link as opposed
to being sent over the real (IPsec) interface? I'm trying to understand
why this distinction matters...

> o Prefix Length (1 octets) - The length of the prefix in bits;

Question. Does this specification allow the use of < 64 bit prefixes?
Do current address autoconfiguration mechanisms allow such prefixes
to be used as a basis for assigning addresses? Do you envision the use
of a short prefix as opposed to prefix delegation when the device
needs multiple /64s?

  The Gen-ART Review by Avshalom Houri on 2009-09-24 suggested a
  section describing how the requirements in section 3 are being 
  addressed by the solution.
