Dear bzs et el.:

1) I was made aware of the referenced "New IP" efforts about two years 
ago. After watching the below online discussion video recording, in 
particular, Andrew Sullivan's comments near the end (starting at time 
marker 00:53:42) that reminded us about thefull architecture versus 
building block approaches, the super importance of incremental 
deployability and the main issue of IPv6 being formally incompatible 
with IPv4, etc., I posted a feedback there.


2) Essentially, I offered our EzIP RAN (Regional Area Network) 
configuration as the "New IP" test bed. So that they could have a real 
life demonstration setup going within the existing Internet environment, 
yet independent of the current operations. It could avoid spending a lot 
of efforts on conceptually convincing others by theoretical analysis and 
reasoning. We had some follow-up exchanges. But, they continued on with 
their original way.
