I wonder whether the routing on flat identifier(irrelevant to location)will become a vulnerability to being attacked by random destination identifier scan, since the last hop router doesn't know the exact range of the identifiers in its local scale. Take the unlimited range of the flat identifier into consideration, the vulnerability will become even worse than that of current ARP(for one subnet,there is a limit on the range of ARP resoluti
