I would have to agree, i am surprised that there is a single Cisco
3800 series router running test code of LISP at any content
provider.... which is all this is.  Facebook made it clear that LISP
was an experiment, not a technology direction.  I don't think this
example represents anything in particular.  As a network operator, i
am afraid LISP is going to turn into the next 6to4 .. an interesting
idea that causes more harm than good.  Sorry to the fans of 6to4 and
LISP, i just long for the day when real IPv6 restores the real e2e
internet without strange trickery along the way.
