I'm not sure what is meant by TLAs in this context, so, I'll leave that alone.

The lack of end-site multihoming (more specifically the lack of PI for
end-sites) was created by the IETF and resolved by the RIRs.
The beginning of resolving this was ARIN proposal 2002-3.

The RA religion still hasn't been solved.
