for all other applications there are unique-local or global addresses,
but a node itself does not need to have a address other then link-local.

i was actually surprised to see hostroutes to unique local addresses
when running olsr in v6, as that should be hostroutes to link-local
addresses, AFAIR.

my questions is: how should handle olsr the non link local addresses?
via MID or should they be announced via a HNA6/128?

i have to lookup the rfc during the trainride today.
