% However, that expectation applies to stable, well understood technology.
% It seems entirely possible that multi6 will come up with a direction
% that would require some new thinking, and the initial technical discussion
% of that would belong in the IETF (as was the case for CIDR). But that
% discussion doesn't belong on this list, and doesn't belong on the
% multi6 list either, until we have made some architectural progress there.
% So I think we should just leave it for now...

	sure, fine.  Just pointing out the ASN based, prefix assignment
	hack is -very- old and has been abandoned by the IETF in
	favor of the processes we currently use.

% Not yet IMHO, see above.

	actually, I think it is imprudent to not include the
	RIR public policy fourm in any discussions on new address
	assignment plans.  YMMV of course.
