As soon as you wish to route external traffic into the manet you
will run into trouble if nodes are just using "random" addresses
(unless you use som mobileIP like techniqe). When using IPv4
this is often solved by using NAT, but that is not very likely
to be used with IPv6 :-)
For internal traffic it should make no difference since olsr routing is
not aggregated.
