NANOG = North American Network Operators' Group
Tim, please stop lowering this list's signal/noise ratio. This list is not for
philophical treatise on anything. It's an operator's group. Discussion of
IPv8, merits or lack there of, and such is better suited for lists like
Big-internet, which is for non-operational side of things.

Wrong. As IPv8 currently stands, it has nothing to do with operations.
Once Jim documents it in an I-D, solicits peer review, and get at least two
interoperable implementations, then it would be of interest to NANOG. I'm sure
toy junkies like me would love to spend some time playing with implementation
of IPv8 once that happens.
Until then, please keep whatifs, philosophical rants etc off NANOG.
