Which is v6. Propping up v4 will only let those who dragged their feet
continue weeping crocodile tears while continuing to fail at their
task. It has been established as broad consensus that v6 is the way
forward. If industry people failed to do their part in moving towards
this future, they should not be surprised at failing as businesses.
A dedicated, shared prefix (not from 1918) is the lowest risk for address
conflicts, and easiest to manage and control.
It is also established practice that if you deploy non-unique address
space, be it from 1918 or another special prefix, you are to pay the
additional cost in managing the resulting mess. Your network. Your
I find it objectionable to waste even more address space on making it
easier to avoid DTRT. Moral and perception play a large part here --
if the IETF says it is OK to cheat your way out of what has been the
obvious upgrade/expansion/business continuity path since last millenium,
what kind of message are we sending out?
