To me, true "out of band management" means that the management traffic
doesn't flow over production links. You are right that IS-IS can
continue to function when IP is confused (although with integrated
IS-IS OSI will probably be just as confused as IP). But IS-IS isn't a
management protocol, of course. :-)
IPv6 is also very useful in providing non-IPv4 management.
