* I am surprised that some of the option formats do not do a better job of aligning fields on 32-bit boundaries.  Re-arranging a few fields (and possibly adding a Reserved/Padding field) would make parsing easier for the S46 Rule Option and the S46 DMR Option.

* I will note that since each of these options provides a single IP address, there is no mechanism in place to handle a failure with service hosted at that IP address.  For example, what would a client do if the address signaled via the OPTION_S46_BR was no longer reachable?
