In IIS 7.5, there is the option of selecting "All Unassigned". We have the IPv4 equivalent of it in ICS but that does not cover IPv6 ::0. What
I said is if we can provide a mechanism to cover "really all" unassigned,
the rest could be managed with multiple server components.

However if you want to have your own server listen an IP on the same port,
you must set it a higher boot priority group. Otherwise forcing IIS to
allocate even only one IP is impossible.
