	why do you say they don't make sense?  they do make sense to me.
	what did you expect if the above does not make sense?

	scopeid for link-local addresses are indeed interface id for the 
	interface.  this is only because that KAME code assumes one-by-one
	mapping between interfaces (hardware terminology) and links
	(vip6 terminology), to simplify scope management.
