One way to do this is for two ISPs to band together
in order that each ISP can sell half of a joint
multihoming service. Each ISP would set aside a
subset of their IP address space to be used by many
such multihomed customers. Each ISP would announce
the subset from their neighbor's space which means
that there would be two new DFZ prefixes to cover
many multihomed customers.


Except this completely disregards some customers concerns about having
provider independence and being able to change providers without
having a major financial disincentive to do so.  That _IS_ a real
business concern, no matter how much the IETF would like to pretend
it does not matter.


If this message was not signed with gpg key 0FE2AA3D, it's probably
a forgery.
