Mobile IP would like to send out packets with the mobile node's

If I'm not mistaken (although my coauthor has tracked the mobile
ip cruft more than have I), there is some notion of a tunneling
mechanism from the first-hop mobile ip gateway, such that the
bogon source is really never seen in that fashion (as a bogon).
Again, I admit complete ignorance of mobile ip cruft.
Plus I don't think the gain is worth the pain. I'd rather see
a technology that actually solves the problem instead of swatting
at gnats with a sledge hammer.
Well, right now, you get swatted. Figure out a better way, and
you'll stop getting swatted.
