Title : GAPI: A Geographically Aggregatable Provider
Independent Address Space to Support Multihoming in
Author(s) : M. Py, I. van Beijnum

This document establishes an address allocation framework for
Geographically Aggregatable Provider Independent (GAPI) IPv6 addresses
for the purpose of multihoming. A /16 is divided in a hierarchical
manner over geographical entities such as parts of continents,
countries, states, provinces and metropolitan areas, with each
receiving one or more /32 allocations from which end-user assignments
can be made. The number of /32 allocations for a geographical entity
depends on the current population. This address allocation framework
in itself does not present a scalable multihoming solution, it merely
provides a necessary building block for such solutions.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
