I would have had to look up the use-in-documentation spaces, but knew
the obviously-not-really-usable spaces by heart, and I assume that
most readers of this list would also immediately recognise 10/8 and linklocal.

I've only seen it as www.ipv6, not as www.ipv4, and in that version it's
pretty useless if v6 is what is not working -and- you have both address
families on your main address. Your experience may of course differ.
