What is your proposal for numbering exchange points in a more aggregatable
fashion? An exchange point is about as multi-homed as they come, and as
you know multi-homed nets "break aggregation" anyway. I suppose you could
take the address for the EP medium out of one of the attached providers'
address space, but that's a small improvement at best (and a hole at worst,
if that provider later disconnects from the EP).
BTW, I agree as to the non-utility of ep.net.
