This is far too diffuse. You'll get a "yes, we've got IPv6".
You should at least add
- IPv6 packet filtering and policy management (at least simple access
- DHCPv6-PD client running over PPP or ethernet (possibly bridged DSL)
- Ability to split the delegated prefix into a /64 for every LAN and
loopback interface, preferably fully configurable
- Configurable RA on LAN interfaces, using the dynamically allocated
- (wishlist) configurable ifid's on the LAN and loopback interfaces as
an alternative to using EUI-64
- WAN link addressing using whatever is available of SLAAC, DHCPv6
IA_NA or link local. Specifically: Using SLAAC for the WAN link
should be possible without sacrificing any router functionality on
and probably a lot more. DNS resolver handling needs a chapter on it's
The point is: We've been asking for "IPv6" for too long. That's just
one bit in a packet header. We need to start asking for the features we
expect, which is a lot more than that bit.
