My memory may be failing here, but IIRC it was Dave Clark (in a long email
message to some mailing list - the IPv6 or Big-I lists, maybe?) who first came
up with the concept of splitting the IPv6 address field into two halves, for
location and identity.
I think the main think Mike added, in coming up with GSE, was the concept that
the border routers would fill in the high order parts of the locator portion.
