=> In both of our drafts (DSMIPv4 and DSMIPv6) we use dynamic
address assignment for both v4 and v6. The main reason for allowing
this is local mobility management using MIP. I don't really agree
with Pekka's original comment about the difficulty of doing this.
This dynamic address assignment mechanism is implemented and _used_
today in MIPv4. It is also documented in HMIPv6 and there is no
reason why we can't use it in DSMIP.
