It's just a mess. I think that we all can agree that a real locator/ identifier split is the correct architectural direction, but that's simply not politically tractable. If the real message that the provider community is trying to send is that they want this, and not IPv6 as it stands today, then that's the message that should be sent, without reference to shim6.


How is a split between locator / identifier any different logicaly from the existing ipv4 source routing?

I thought that got dead ended?

Or is a table lookup going to be needed?

Wont all those tables need to be in the exact (or close to) same place as the current routing tables?

Appreciate any enlightenment.
