This is completely orthogonal to a real identifier/locator split, which would divide what we know of as the 'address' into two separate spaces, one which says "where" the node is, topologically, and one which says "who" the node is.
Hmm, no idea whether it's a good idea or not, but from POV of scaling while it might make 'where' scaleable, you still have to find a way to tie "who" to "where".

Some might say we already have this split though, DNS.
