Hello folks,

Does anyone have any experiences or insights to share on how  more (or
less) efficient routing is with IPv6? Any specific thoughts with respect to
how the following characteristics help or not with routing efficiency?
- fixed header size
- Extension header chain
- flow labels in header
- no intermediate fragmentation
- no checksums

Thanks in advance.
