Hi Michael,

Thanks for the feedback. I split them into separate proposals because
I believe that Multiple Discrete Networks raises functionally
different issues from proposal 103. Should someone propose an elegant
way to unify the two, I'll read it with interest.

I have no opinion on the merits of incorporating the final version of
104 into the final version of 103 and will follow the AC's guidance on
the matter.

My understanding is that IPv6 Multiple Discrete Networks (proposal
2009-5) is very likely to become policy. Proposal 104 is offered in
anticipation of that outcome. If for some reason 2009-5 does not
become policy, 104 will obviously be moot in its entirety.
