   Perhaps I'm being rather naive, but one of the really cool things about
the initial 6bone test address space was that the prefix was completely
AS based.. theoretically if an adressing scheme was adopted that did not
permit transferrible address space (think NAT) the entire backbone routing
table could be simply composed of AS paths and relationship's between AS's. 
(if an addressing scheme based on AS or some kind of AS equivalent was
adopted) Ofcourse AS's all of a sudden become a hot commodity.. but
today, most routing policy is dictated based on AS more than by address
