Speaking of which, I have a somewhat strange scenario.  I have a
global IPv4 address on one interface, so I put that interface into the
Public zone.  I have a private IPv4 address (RFC1918 on my LAN) on
another interface.  I want to put that on the Home zone so I can do
mDNS, etc.  BUT this same "private" NIC also has a public IPv6 address
because the private LAN's router is a Hurricane Electric IPv6 tunnel
endpoint...I don't want the ip6tables rules to be in the Home zone,
but rather Public.

Does firewalld support non-congruent rules between IPv4 and IPv6?  How
about different zones for different IP addresses on the same interface
(mixed IPv4/IPv6 or even multiple IPv4 or multiple IPv6 for that
