I think lot of these are missed opportunities. There shouldn't really
be IPAM, there should number management system, where number
presentation, range and such are plugins. So IPv4, IPv6 are just small
plugins to the generic system. Just the same you could add RT, RD,
VLAN, Interface, PseudowireID, PVC etc allocator as separate plugin,
fully leveraging the generic infrastructure and UX. Over time the
plugin infra would be extended, and as API/UX gains features, all
number systems get them for free.
