Does this mean that you agree that the following text should be
taken out from Section 4 of the "IPv6 Security Architecture" document?
"IPv6 is not intended to support so-called "in-band" key management, where
the key management data is carried in a distinct IPv6 header. Instead
it will primarily use so-called "out-of-band" key management, where the key
management data will be carried by an upper layer protocol such as UDP
or TCP on some specific port number."
