Fair enough.

I am employed by Cisco Systems, but all of my statements are my own and I do not represent my employer.  I believe that my employer may benefit from any policy that makes IP addresses more available to more of our customers - we can perhaps sell more routers if more people have addresses - but nobody from Cisco has encouraged me to work in this topic.  Otherwise, I have no commercial interest in the outcome of the policy proposals that I've made.  The proposals that I've put forward are an honest attempt to motivate conversation.

If anybody has any doubts and/or I can clarify anything about my interests, let me know.
