Wrong boilerplate - how did this even get posted in June 2005? SRMP identifies sender and receiver using their 32-bit Sender_ID, which may be an IPv4 address. For use with IPv6, a user group will need to establish a unique identifier per host. There is no requirement for this identifier to be unique in the Internet; it need only be unique in the communicating group. If this was standards track, I would be concerned about this - not about limiting the ID to 32 bits, but about the mechanism for ensuring uniqueness within the group. In a NATed network, even IPv4 addresses aren't unique.
