The hard part is coming up with a way to do the host/location mapping
in a way that is simple, fast, cheap, secure, flexible and reliable.
Wouldn't we all start deploying, e.g., HIP tomorrow if we had a
solution for this?
I'm not exactly current on what's happening with HIP but aren't there
supposed to be working implementations today?
And, how might that solution be any different than MIP HoA/CoA
One of the main mechanisms we're considering in the multi6 design team
(or multi6 DT #1 I should say) is a distributed database that holds the
mapping from identifier to a set of locators. For multihoming this
makes a lot of sense as you know all your possible addresses in
advance. With MIP this is different, but there you have the advantage
that the home agent is (presumably) always available, while the point
of multihoming is to survive failures.
