If I understand you correctly you propose to drop the output of the error
attribute for IPv6 routes too? It is not that important that those two
outputs are identical and if you make a change, please introduce the
error propagation for IPv4 so one can see the socket errors for those
routes, too. I wouldn't drop those for IPv6 just for consistency reasons.
