right, as long as you also install RFC4191 MSR routes into the correct table per upstream I think you'll have the exact same behaviour as described in the draft.

For now we just wanted to be as compliant as possible regarding RFC 6204 and 6204-bis12 and we need the source-based routing for generic multiwan and to send out the ingress/egress policy failed stuff.

Markus has done that in the IETF homenet project. but the Linux multiple routing table support either needs to be extended for full support, or routes must be duplicated among tables.

splendid! really good to see progress on IPv6 support in openwrt.
