Operational issues in the ISP space have always favored restricting
topology or the knowledge about unaggregated parts thereof. At the same
time, operational issues in the edge enterprise space favor provider
independence for maximum flexibility. We have representative voices for
the ISP issues, where are the comparable voices for the enterprise
issues? The ISP focus carried round 1, so the allocation policy only
allows for strict aggregation via provider blocks. The enterprise demand
for multi-homing is the fundamental issue this WG is supposed to
address, but the primary voices are those insisting on maximal
aggregation for the ISP routing system. It is hard to believe this will
end up with a well balanced result that considers all the requirements.
Speaking of, we have a requirements doc that needs to get published.
