> Is there support in this WG for making route optimization a MUST in all IPv6 hosts ? The ball is really in this WG's court. This is really a "do you really want ubiquitous end to end functionality or not?" question

I'm not sure if that rule could be enforced. If a node keeps on sending to home address, it's a problem for the home network, but not for the sender.

Is there a business reason for honouring an optimization? Why would a "free" ad-driven service (e.g. sports news) care about the well being of someone else's network? Why should it put effort in the authentication computations, if there is no benefit for itself?
