Comparing GRE with LISP is like comparing /etc/hosts with the global DNS system. ;-)
I don't understand the comments about LISP and IPv4. IPv4 works just excellent with LISP. I have a IPv4 block at home which I multi-home over my IPv6-only DSL and IPv4-only FTTH line.
LISP is pretty address family agnostic: IPv4 over IPv4, IPv4 over IPv6, IPv6 over IPv4, IPv6 over IPv6, all work without problems.
