NO RATINGS
@Mike: surely the issue of IPv6 (16-bytes) vs. IPv4 (4-bytes) is a non-issue in terms of memory size -- even in a memory constrained system.

My understanding is that a bunch pof end devices will trpically communicate with each other using a 6LoWPAN (passing data packets that are only 127 bytes in size) -- the trick comes when the 6LoWPAN interfaces with the Gateway, which connects to the Internet ... now we have to take big Internet packets and split them up into lots of smaller 6LoWPAN packets, or take lots of small 6LoWPAN packets and bundle them up into a big Internet packet ... but all of thsi is done in the Gateway .. so no memory footprint impact on the end devices...
