I don't want to pick on details along the line of this discussion.

What seems worthwhile noting: These headers in IP do carry some 
information relevant for routing. If you rip off the IPv4 header, 
replace it by IPv9, then route to an IPv4 domain again (with ripping and 
replacing), will be the same IPv4 header restored again? And if so, 
i.e., IPv9 headers carry equivalent information to that of IPv4 headers, 
why do we need IPv9?

Alternatively, if you actually speak about tunneling, I don't see much 
novelty in it.
