Yes it is unstuck, but I strongly suggest it be brought back into this WG
because (1) it is way outside the bounds of figuring out how to operate a
multihomed network, and into rearchitecting the system in ways that will
seriously undermine all assumptions about reachability and security, (2) is
completely off the radar of anyone that did not stick it out through the
dead time, & (3) is the root of the discussion here about the utility of
simultaneous use of addresses with different reachability characteristics.
