As it looks like the long term solution will be some kind of
identifier/locator separation which will have a huge impact on all
aspects of IPv6, I think this topic deserves attention from a wider
audience than it's getting now.
Identifier/locator separation has been a topic of conversation at the
IETF for at least the last decade if not longer. In spite of this
continuous interest, an actual fruitful proposal has yet to arrive.
A problem was that multi6 WG has been required to first produce
requirement document. It is just recently that so many people
recognize it not a productive approach.
highly recommend attempting to do a fully worked proposal complete
with documents before bringing up the topic in a broad audience -- it
will increase your credibility markedly.
Meanwhile, I wrote an ID
on general architecture of scalable multihoming.
Then, we designed and implemented a solution based on LIN6 proposal.
Paper on it is available at:
