I noticed the new paragraphs on the IPv4 vs IPv6 types not being
comparable - is there a canonical ordering for mixed address lists
defined anywhere (e.g. an RFC)?

If there is, then it should be possible to implement that on BaseIP and
BaseNet so that comparisons work as canonically defined. If there isn't,
then that should be mentioned in the PEP as the reason why the PEP
deliberately isn't trying to invent a convention.
