UDP / Identifying ISAKMP message


two general questions concerning IPSec and ISAKMP:

1.) How can the IP layer be determine if a certain IPv6 PDU 
is (part of) an ISAKMP message? 

2.) Are there any special reasons, why ISAKMP hasn't simply been 
assigned a "Next Header" number for IPv6 -  so that it could run 
directly over IP itself?  

I'm implementing some basic functionality of ISAKMP for my master's 
thesis and these questions occur several times.

Thanks for any help!
