In order to evaluate the suitability of IPv6 transition mechanisms,
we need to define the scenarios in which these mechanisms have to be
used. One specific scope is the 'unmanaged network', which typically
corresponds to a home or small office network. The scenarios are
specific to single link subnet, and are defined in terms of IP
connectivity supported by the home gateway and the ISP. We first
examine the generic requirements of four classes of applications:
local, client, peer to peer and server. Then, for each scenario, we
infer transition requirements by analyzing the needs for smooth
migration of applications from IPv4 to IPv6.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
