Hi Avinash,

thanks for your comments, they raised some really good points about the

Coincidentally, I'm currently re-reading this part of the mesos source
in depth, so hopefully I'll be able to address them in-depth in the
coming days, along with some more detail on the dual-stack part.

Best regards,
