Can you describe these limitations please.

Is it something instead of MultiLevelDirectories? Maybe it is better to
implement MLDs?

There is some issue with network packet labeling using IPSEC, which i
couldn't resolve. I can provide some policy for interoperability of 2
peers with certain labels. But how to handle Client-Server operations with
multiple clients having different labels? IPSEC doesn't have functionality
to transfer label information from client to server. Maybe this should be
done by some daemons, like racoon?
