Re: Moving forward on Site-Local and Local Addressing

I vote for C.  Given the disagreement on the "legitimate" uses of site local
addresses (and scoped addressing in general) it will be difficult to be sure
that a replacement actually solves all the problems that everyone concerned
expected site-locals to solve, and does so in a way that is not prohibitively
difficult/expensive to deploy.
