May I please point out that this discussion has not mentioned the wide
scale implementation of IPv6 or some derrivative thereof. The greatly
increased quantity of addresses should have some impact on
this. Granted, for the sake of routing tables, some organization needs
to manage the allocation so we don't end up with piecemeal routing but
the restrictions on how many addresses folks can have should be
lessened in such a circumstance.
