Re: design of a real routing v. endpoint id seperation

ISP operating a VLMrouter to offer multihoming service to their customers would originate the entire multihoming space prefix to their customers AND to all their peers. These would have ALL the prefixes from the Multihoming Space.So... Let me get this straight. You think that significantly changing the economic model of every ISP on the planet (or at least every large ISP on the planet) is easier than changing the code in every core router? ROTFLMAO Owen
a) announce the whole space aggregated
b) peer with other providers who host other customers
ISPs who dont wish to connect these customers should feel free not to, and that will have no bearing on the rest of those who do.
If you are referring to the affect that this will attract "unwanted" traffic, that would be considered a COB.
In essence, the previous discussion about LNP suggested that telco's must do the same thing, attract unwanted traffic, traffic they must switch right back out of their network.
