It is my understanding
Soul have suggested RFC 1149 reflect this information in further depth however as there has been no working group formed to test a pigions ability to negotiate IPv6 addresses without needing vendor supplied patches it was decided it was redundant to have the document rewritten twice in a short time span.
I believe we, as the community behind the Australian internet front have a moral obligation to test the capability of pigions at this years conference. And here Vocus was thinking their IPv6 wifi was cool.

Yes - there was a theoretcial technical issue with converting the
carrier pigeons with a4 printout (analog IP) into the maximum ethernet
MTU available at the time. Fragmentation was suggested and tried.
However, it was even practically even more difficult. Upon
fragmentation (using a shredder) it was very difficult to shove the
fragmented packet through the available ethernet port on the switch.
Despite trying many pigeons and pushing very hard a packet did not
arrive at the destination so the theory on joining the fragmented pigeon
was never actually put to the test.
Alas it was not until 'Digital IP' was invented that we were able to get
around this problem much to the relief of Bill Lawry and Wendy Jnr Jnr.
