I also support the notion of having a "family-specific" attribute set.
I'm sorry for any confusion. The intent was never to "take away" any
options that already exist. I certainly am not suggesting any current
attributes be changed in any way.
All I suggested is that a new "data type" be specified allowing single IP
Addresses to be conveyed in either IPv4 or IPv6 address family.
It would be up to the designer of a new attribute to weigh the pros and
cons and select the appropriate data type. This would simply be another
tool in the extensions toolbox at their disposal.
My reasons are somewhat different.
In the case of carrying a "pure" IPv6 address and a pure IPv4 address then
the argument for having a single attribute to carry both makes sense.
My recommendation is limited to anything that would currently fit in the
IPv4 or IPv6 address data types.
