Yeah, CCITT - thanks for the jog - your memory is better than mine, I
was too busy `networking` on a straight hand key and cans in `92. All
valves (tubes) and sparks tracking over the damp egg insulators :)

I must admit to total confusion over why they need to "grab" IPs from
the v6 address space? Surely they don't need the equivalent of
band-plans for IP space? Or have I missed some v6 technical point
totally?
