You mean, have a namespace for use by the path-selection algorithms, one
which is separate from the namespace used for end-end naming?
That's a really good idea; too bad we didn't think of it in time to suggest
it to the IPv6 designers, it would have been really nice to have that in IPv6.
actually I think it can be done without changes to IPv6, since it
doesn't affect the packet format, and the only things that have to know
about it are routers and network management tools.
