I understand the reasoning behind RIR's (and the community
that supports them) not caring about routability, but if
there is a lesson we can learn from IPv4, it is that perhaps
that divorce is not entirely practical.
It might be a good idea to think about how RIR's (and the
community that supports them) "could care" about
routability, so we don't end up in the same situation with
IPv6, whenever that will be, or if any of us will be alive.
It's definitely too late to do anything about it for IPv4,
which means there will be even more lessons to learn in the
I know it is a moving target (advances in FIB memory is not
something an RIR [and the community that supports them] can
depend on, for example), but I also don't think it makes
complete sense for the RIR's (and the community that
supports them) to be in a utopia about this - that it will
all "just sort itself out".
