The solution is to find new externets to reboost the network.
The Internet started as an overlay network over the telephony networks.
It has been tremendously successful for various reasons and it is now
even seeking to replace the telephony networks.
Nowadays, we see a bunch of overlay networks running over the Internet.
These overlays are developing fast (much like the Internet many years
ago) and they provide services end users seem to be interested in and
which they are willing to deploy.
I think it is important to realize that the IETF's mission in the
networking world has changed and much of the real innovative networking
work appreciated by the end users is to a large extend happening outside
of the IETF.
