I'm OK with it, but I'll make a quick comment:

<this is the devil's advocate speaking>
One (it not the) reason why the routing prefix appears as one field in
the diagram is because we removed the TLA and NLA boundaries in it. A
twisted mind could read the additional text quoted above as an attempt
to return to a more rigidly structured routing prefix.

That being said, ship it.
