   Silly.  We already *do have two namespaces*.  One is EIDs in form
   of FQDNs.  They are portable.  Another is IPv4 addresses which aren't.

A FQDN is NOT useable as an EID.  The host is not the endpoint.

   Sorry, nobody managed to make any reasonable case pro magic-cookie EIDs
   as yet.  The best rationale i've heard was from Noel who said that
   his "architect's sense" tells him so.  Funny thing, a surgeon i know
   was at loss when i asked him about this function of organism, should be
   a new discovery in medicine.

Consider process migration.
