Here's a thought:
Planning to provide IPv6 connectivity by advertising through its
single aggregated address
Is different from
Planning to provide IPv6 connectivity by advertising ONLY its single
The third requirement of that 220.127.116.11 does not specifically state
that other advertisements
than the single aggregate allocation must not be planned.
Additional advertisements may have to do with connectivity in addition
to what is
advertised through the aggregate. But existence of advertisement of
satisfies (3) despite the extraneous advertisements.
Does the whole aggregate even have to appear in a single advertisement
to satisfy (3)?
Advertisement of a subset of the allocation is still potentially
sufficient to provide
connectivity through addresses which are a part of the single
"single aggregated address" are characteristics of the allocation.
If you plan to provide connectivity through obtaining multiple non-aggregated
IPv6 allocations, then you fail (3).
(3) doesn't say
*plan to provide IPv6 connectivity to organizations to which it
will assign IPv6 address space, by advertising that connectivity
through a single advertisement of its entire single aggregated
address allocation; and*
