Perhaps we should discuss this in a different way...
Ricky, if you were to design a new protocol today such that you can give
out addresses, at will without having to be conservative with the goal of
minimizing human factor costs, and _guarantee_ that you will not run out
of addresses in the useful life of the protocol, how big would that
address space need to be?
