RE: provider-int geo aggr [Re: plug: thesis on site multihoming]
I have been thinking about this but that is ok. Here is my logic. When
we designed IPv6 we left many open for discussion parts in the
architecture. For example scoping of interfaces, multiple
format-prefixes for address architecture, flowlabel. Solving anyone of
these is a complex undertaking, but could be done later. I believe it
is fair because of this effort to look at geo addressing again for
Multi6. It does not break existing implementations or deployment test
beds or those emerging further, but a policy discussion that can have an
affect to implementation but in a backwards compatible manner, and same
with scoping and the flowlabel. In this case revisitation of the
principles of geo address architecture is in fact valid IMO.
