I have a concern about the business model of the HIP which uses HIT (flat
label) as host identifier.
Since the public key is self-generated by hosts and the HIT is the hash
value of the public key which has no organization semantics, how can the
id/loc mapping management been shared among different countries and
different service providers? I don't believe it's acceptable from both
political and economic aspects that all the mapping management is dominated
by a single company, such as Skype.
