"Site multihoming" to one provider (called site multiconnecting in the v4
draft) is basically a no-brainer, AFAIK. Is there something here which
leads you to believe we need to work on this?
We could push multi-connecting as a solution/workaround for some use cases
though. IMO, that makes perfect sense to me, but at the same time, it
cannot meet *all* the sites' needs, so we need something else too.
