Wouldn't the IPv6 No, they just emit the traffic anyhow. Often it travels an amazing distance before hitting a router that doesn't have a default route - and if it's one of those providers that internally routes 1918 addresses of their own it might go even further ;) > ULA answer be the same as the IPv4 RFC1918 answer, "I could announce > those networks for you, but no one else would accept the routes.

How does this enterprise demand that > other providers route the ULA prefixes too? More correctly, the same people who do proper bogon filtering for IPv4 will quite likely do it for IPv6, and the same people who botch it for IPv4 will almost certainly botch it worse for IPv6. Note that this has *quite* different operational semantics than "everyone".. > If we're talking about routing ULAs within a providers network, I'd > think providers would love them. Right now, an enterprise can buy a > "corporate VPN" or layer two network to route "private" addresses. One has to wonder if the first attempt to multihome a ULA will be accidental or intentional, or has it already happened?
