This would be much easier if we had a bottom-up
hierarchical addressing structure rather than the 
current top-down one.

Consider the distribution of cryptographically
authenticated connectivity maps a la NIMROD or a 
multi-level LS protocol, for example, for path
authentication vs. how one would distribute and 
authenticate reachability information with the 
current addressing structure.
