Maybe I missed it, but is there something in your solution that keeps 
dual-homed leaves from having to renumber when changing ISPs?  In your 
concept, is there some "ownership" of the address space on the part of the 
customer?  I know that being able to swing to a new provider (due one of a 
hundred reasons, including Layer 8 manangement decisions) without having 
to renumber or suffer significant downtime is one of the things that makes 
dual-homing appealing.
