You can create tunnel which encapsulates both of IPv4 and IPv6 packets by

$ ip -f inet6 tunnel add <tunnel name> mode any local <local addr> <remote addr>

No. I have no plan to implement it.

'proto' can be 0 (it means wildcard). So we have to consider the range of
the overlapped protocol number, if we really allow users to create multiple
tunnels for different inner protocols. I want to keep the current code for
simplicity and you can configure the tunnel which you want without this
