Let me put it this way: I am not sure there is a problem here to solve. 
I expected
to read a draft explaining what the problem is we are trying to solve 
with "scoped"
addresses. The draft (imo) lumps together several problems most of which 
can be
solved by other means in an effort to justify limited range addresses. 
So, no I
don't intend to write a scoped-stuff-draft of my own. Patrik posed a few 
questions to this effect on the list - none of which have been answered.

If the diff -u is too large there is limited value in providing 
alternative text. I
agree with Pekka in disagreeing with the basic assumptions of the draft.

The "and designing a replacement"-part worries me. You assume that there 
is consensus
to only deprecate SL if a replacement can be found. I am quite sure you 
are wrong in
that assumption.
