Dear all :
ROLL has the concept of a leaf, that is a 6LN that is not aware of RPL but
needs routing handled for it.
With RPL, and probably any other route-over protocol, there is a need to signal
either way, i.e. the node handles its routing (like a classical RPL node) or
the node expects that the 6LR will manage the routing on its behalf (like a RPL
leaf). The bit is IGP-agnostic, and it applies to any protocol.
draft-thubert-roll-unaware-leaves suggests a bit that indicates that the 6LR
that is capable to handle its routing should signal it, so the unaware leaf
does not need to set it.
Q: Should the bit be defined in rfc6775-update as opposed to a ROLL since it is
Side question: Is it the right approach or should the leaf set the bit instead?
