Tidbits & the "NANOG Community"
...
with respect to jumping from 32-bits to 64-bits many UNIX-to-UNIX users
have noted... ONE more bit (33) may be enough to distinguish Legacy
from New. The bit would go on the Left as opposed to Right which would
double
the existing mess.
...
Linux has the added bit ready in the SPARE bit and the Left-most TTL bit
deprecated to 0 years ago. A Source+Destination pair is needed for full
interchange between Legacy and New. A single bit would be isolated planes.
...
Based on a survey of IPv4 Address Space the "NANOG Community" does
not appear to involve many critical back-bones or infrastructure. In some
circles that would not be considered "On the Internet". YMMV
