reliability because if it loses connectivity orders don't roll in.
Whether that is done by redundancy or by a single highly reliable
service will depend on the available services and their
reputations. And I think the vote is still out on that.

People talk about the wildest things with IPv6: cellphones as routers
connecting PANs, IPv6 addresses in every lightswitch, lightbulb, and
carpet fiber, etc. and folk just nod their heads.
Yet people seem to think that mechanisms for connectivity will remain
the same as in IPv4.
I think that in the long term, as people become more and more
dependent on Internet-based technologies, it is likely that the
demand for high reliability will be universal, not limited to
