And that's one of the reasons this draft updates 5735. If routers make
decisions as to whether or not to enable a feature based on whether
behind a public or private address, having a defined address range for
CGN space will be significantly easier to deal with than to have
arbitrary address ranges selected on a per-ISP basis.
But that's certainly not the only way to handle that problem, right? If
the router needs to be updated to recognize the new space anyway,
wouldn't it make more sense to update it with a more generic mechanism
to signal "You're behind a private address?" That way you can use the
same mechanism for IPv4 and IPv6.
