I confess I don't see where is the political decision to include the IPv6 source routing.
From what is described it seems someone made the IPv6 specification by going over the IPv4 spec, and (maybe because that person wasn't a security expert) included on the IPv6 spec the same feature already found on the first spec.
Where is the political part of this? It seems more like a mis-informed technical decision.
Were the WEP design errors also a political decision because they were not made by security experts?
