We, Sekiya, I and other Linux IPv6 Users JP members, discussed on this 
issue, and now we think Linux must not go wrong. 

Delays are dangerous.  Let's make a room for sin6_scope_id as soon as 
possible.  (I know you are busy,  but the best to do is to add into 
2.3.x kernels.)  After that, support code for sin6_scope_id should be 
added.
