I think there is some overlap even between shim6 and btns, but the overlap
is somewhat marginal. Consider these examples:
* You could request current IPsec security parameters from shim6 module
and it would tell you that there is none
* To set-up BTNS IPsec policies and associations, you also need locators
However, there is no reason why these APIs couldn't be decoupled.

There is some overlap, but I think it is possible to abstract it. HIP is
the common denominator, so HIP people need to make sure that the "gray
area" is covered in the drafts.
In any case, it would be very useful for everyone to review all drafts
with a close attention what their working group wants from the APIs.
