Whilst we are on the subject of relevant drafts - it should be noted that situations like this provide significant motivation for the work presented in both [0] and [1] (full disclosure: I am the editor of [0]).  I'd really encourage the community to review both documents and comment on whether they provide benefit in this problem space.  I'm very happy to take feedback on the requirements draft [0] particularly - since this aimed to describe this problem from an operator perspective.

Essentially, until something is done in a more general sense in the protocol, we will continue to see threads  liked this one popping up every few months.

I'll post a further update to the nanog list when we have requested a working group last-call on the requirements draft asking for reviews.

Thanks for your time,
r.
