I think that if we want to make progress in the RRG, there should be
competition between different proposals. I hope that several different
proposals for a new architecture will be developped within the group.
Concerning the utilization of locators, it seems reasonable to assume
that they will be of fixed size if the proposed solution is built on top
of IPv4 or IPv6. If the solution relies on another "infrastructure" than
IPv4/v6, then VLL might be an option.
