I think that a host should be able to change the set of locators
that make it reachable at will. The rate that the system can
disseminate these changes is still TBD, but there obviously
needs to be an upper bound (no pun intended ;-).
Correspondent hosts are free to try different locators at any
time. Typically they will use transport layer hints to

Yes. Even more strongly, the locators are allocated by the

| the packets
Ipsec, in particular, needs to use the identifier in crafting
the security association, NOT the locators. [This would also
allow Ipsec to work through NAT. ;-) ]

Within the site IGP, but using the locators provided in PA space.

These aren't incompatible. Your locators are aggregateable and you
don't need to renumber. Should make everyone happy... ;-)

| But still implies locators can change? For example one move to

Of course. You add new provider, configure edge router with new
locator prefix, update the locator database and you're done.
| Your location is not worldwide provider space but only for relative
| provider space for a site?
| Is that correct?
Locators are part of what we would now think of as PA space. That is,
they are topologically significant information that vary per-provider.
