[RFC2460] defines an extension mechanism to add functionalities to the basic IPv6 header. On LoWPAN networks, some extensions are required to extend routing capabilities. These specific extensions should not leak in the global internet. To optimize encapsulation, a 6LoWPAN dispatch to carry local extensions is defined.
