I think that is overly pessimistic.  I would say that SHIM6 _MAY_
become a routing trick, but, so far, SHIM6 is a still-born piece
of overly complicated vaporware of minimal operational value, if any.

Personally, I think a better solution is to stop overloading IDR
meaning onto IP addresses and use ASNs for IDR and prefixes for
intradomain routing only.

I would, for one.  Policy proposal 2005-1 (I am the author) comes reasonably
close to that.  It will be discussed at the ARIN policy meeting in
Montreal in April.


If it wasn't crypto-signed, it probably didn't come from me.
