Re: scope of solution..

The requirement is clearly to get away from punching a billion holes
in BGP aggregates, and if we achieve that, the solution for passing
hints to the hosts will probably drop right out.
But maybe we should add a conditional requirement
If the solution relies on use of multiple addresses per host, it must
include a simple, scaleable, secure mechanism for the routing
system to tell each host which addresses to use.
