	Title		: GAPI: A Geographically Aggregatable Provider 
                          Independent Address Space to Support Multihoming in

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

	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with

	how to manipulate these messages.
