Indeed - we could have easily ended up with TCP/UDP over CLNP (TUBA)
as IPng, as it worked just fine...

Ultimately, the concerns about potential change control arguments with ITU 
resulted using CLNP's address format for IPv6, only with a fixed length. 
(Those dealing with virtualization today will curse loudly someday when they 
discover that we actively chose to undo existing, working variable length 
addressing in defining IPv6...)
