So if you were drawing out a multihoming roadmap, where would loc/id
be on that roadmap?
I ask because we should consider what we can do short-term and long-term.
Is the loc/id approach long-term? Christian's multi-address "challenge"
is much more short-term, and I think is something we should push forward
The question then is whether we need to create any swamp in the interim
for large enterprises for which Christian's approach is out of scope and
where loc/id (in the host or at the edge) is too far off.
Might we for example agree what the multi6 group can do now to assist
multihoming for new IPv6 deployments, and then "split off" long term
approaches (either within the group or out to IRTF if long-term really
is just that)? Should multi6 focus on what can be done now, or what
can be done in 3+ years?

This is the sort of thing that should be on the Vienna agenda.
