For some scenarios, and maybe in the long term, I think the separation is
But that doesn't mean it solves all the problems, or fits all the
scenarios. On the contrary. Connection survivability? Sure. Load
sharing? Nope. Provider indendence? Maybe not, difficult to say. Etc.
Personally, I see a ID/LOC separation as a long term issue, and more of a
distraction at the moment. It will not be able to give us all, so too
much attention to it could be dangerous.
