Nope. The ULID is supposed to be static, globally unique. Just not
globally routed. Seperating topology from identification.

Something I didn't see discussed yet is that shim6 sites would need to
get a globally unique, provider independent /48 or larger... which folks
could start to announce. But I guess that address space would come from
blocks earmarked as "non-routable, it's a bogon, bad IP space, filter in
BGP at first sight!". :-)
