i) for the overhead of the routing to scale, the hierarchy of
abstractions has to be reasonably closely related to the actual
- ii) this means that either connectivity has to follow addressing, or
addressing has to follow connectivity;
- iii) the IETF cannot mandate where connectivity gets added;
- iv) connectivity gets put in where there are actual traffic flows
commercial reasons to put it in.
Therefore we have to have the addressing follow the connectivity, and
But does a addressing scheme that follows connectivity AND allows
multihoming to a usable degree exist?
addressing scheme such as geographic, which to scale needs to have the
connectivity follow the addressing, is not feasible.
If yes, now would be a good time to unveil it.
If no, we need to select the addressing scheme that is slowest to fail
