This document defines the scenarios in which IPv6 transition
mechanisms are to be used in unmanaged networks.  In order to evaluate
the suitability of these mechanisms, we need to define the scenarios
in which these mechanisms have to be used.  One specific scope is the
"unmanaged network", which typically corresponds to a home or small
office network.  The scenarios are specific to a single subnet, and
are defined in terms of IP connectivity supported by the gateway and
the Internet Service Provider (ISP).  We first examine the generic 
requirements of four classes of applications: local, client, peer to
peer and server.  Then, for each scenario, we infer transition
requirements by analyzing the needs for smooth migration of
applications from IPv4 to IPv6.
