How would this different from the material that has been presented 
already in the SL debate?  The whole anti-site-local argument is based 
around the consequences of a scoped addressing architecture that people 
don't like.

I don't think that is true.  The local-ness of these addresses avoids 
the issue of having to scalably route the PI space.  I can't see 
significant differences in process between globally unique local address 
allocation and a globally unique PI address allocation.
