Re: Site local
Well, yes. BUT, the problem comes with the applications. I can see
applications where this could be an issue, and where this would not be
an issue. I still think that what this group is discussing needs
feedback from applications. We need someone (preferably from the
applications area) to write a document on how the various suggestions
would impact various application layer protocols.

Well, let's think about this a bit...
Let's assume that the transport layer is going to use only the
identifier, not the locator. So, for example, the identifier is
part of the TCP pseudo-header. We also need to assume that the
(architecturally evil) applications that today carry around
IPv4 addresses would morph into carrying around identifiers, but
If you're willing to stipulate to that, then NAT is not at all
necessary and the border routers do NOT need to know about specific
