How does the idea of NAT destroy the global Internet address space?
because in a NATted network the same addresses are used in different
parts of the network. addresses are meaningless.
How much meaning does "Keith Moore" have? Somehow we have a planet with
billions of people on it and those who need to still manage to find the
appropriate "Keith Moore". How do they do that? Are there any lessons
to be learned?
ambiguous names are of course quite useful and even essential in certain
contexts, but they are not suitable for all purposes.
for hosts, applications and routers that are communicating over a network
it is immensely useful to have reasonably stable and unambiguous names
for points of attachment to that network. there are many useful functions
that cannot be accomplished in the absence of such names.
