My primary focus has been on the SOHO users who rarely have more than a
/29, and frequently have a dynamically-assigned /32. Clearly, anyone
who doesn't mind their IP changing weekly is not concerned about PI
space. Portable space requires more prefixes or some sort of source
JAK> want/need PI space and don't want to renumber when changing
JAK> providers. I know that was a consideration when I dual-homed.
Are you saying that people who cannot obtain PI space would rather
remain single-homed? That they'll forgo multihoming until they can
justify PI space?
There have been claims that it's time to upgrade to hardware that can
route /32s. If that is so, all this attempt to aggregate is moot, and
it's time for people to drop prefix-length filters. I'm skeptical.
I'm also curious: Who's first to put their money where their mouth is,
prove that Moore's Law will save them, route /32s, and also remove their
prefix count limits?
