in the most recent architecture, rfc 4291, that was deprecated. The exact statement is IPv4-Compatible IPv6 Address

   The "IPv4-Compatible IPv6 address" was defined to assist in the IPv6
   transition.  The format of the "IPv4-Compatible IPv6 address" is as

   |                80 bits               | 16 |      32 bits        |
   |0000..............................0000|0000|    IPv4 address     |

   Note: The IPv4 address used in the "IPv4-Compatible IPv6 address"
   must be a globally-unique IPv4 unicast address.

   The "IPv4-Compatible IPv6 address" is now deprecated because the
   current IPv6 transition mechanisms no longer use these addresses.
   New or updated implementations are not required to support this
   address type.

I should think you are within bounds to not announce it at all.

Hi all:

With IPv4-compatible IPv6 address space, could I aggregate the address space?

say become ::192.168/112? or It must be converted to native IPv6 address space?

Just wondering,
