It is true that the prexix match between anoncvs.no.netbsd.org and the
freenet6 tunnel is slightly longer than with the ipng.nl tunnel.
This provides the disambiguation for step 1:
1. If nonDEP(samescope(D)) is not empty,
choose a longest matching address against D. If more than one
address is longest matching, choose arbitrary one provided that
an address on I is always preferred.
However, this difference is so small that I would say it should not be

I will read that document next.
