Setting aside the sad story part for the moment, Would this be a good
subject for a BOF? Are there others who would be willing to participate
(residendential,transit or dc operators, and potentially vendors of
equipment or address transfer brokers).
I'd call it something like:
IPV4 runout - Doing more with less.
* IPV4 runout means new entrants will from the outset deploy techniques
the present operators consider undesirable.
* IPV6 should be appearing as part and parcel of new greenfield projects
I would think.
* On the vendor side CGN hardware is becoming a mature product space.
* Datacenter/ICP operators confront a similar set of problems both
supporting outgoing connections for large pools and incoming termination.
