You're basically redefining the term "end-to-end transparency" to suit your own
agenda. Globally implementing what is basically an application layer protocol
in order to facilitate the functioning of an upper layer protocol (i.e. IPv4)
is patent nonsense. The purpose of each layer is to facilitate the one it
encapsulates, not the other way around.
What you advocate is not end-to-end transparency but point-to-point opacity
hinging on a morass of hacks that constitute little more than an abuse of
existing technologies in an attempt to fulfil an unscalable goal.
Fortunately, it is exactly that fact which makes all of your drafts and
belligerent evangelising utterly pointless; you can continue to make noise and
attempt to argue by redefinition all you like, the world will continue to forge
ahead with the deployment of IPv6 and the *actual* meaning of the end-to-end
principle will remain as it is.
