I am thinking of:

1) A review of the IPv6 socket API
2) A review of IPv6 addresses (this is more important than you might think)
3) A review of dual-stacks and how this relates to addresses and APIs
4) A summary of how the IPv6 socket API was intended to be used
5) The problems with how things actually are (API and dual-stacks)
