Re: Shim6 vs PI addressing

I would say that SHIM6 _MAY_ become a routing trick, but, so far, SHIM6 is a still-born piece of overly complicated vaporware of minimal operational value, if any. Personally, I think a better solution is to stop overloading IDR meaning onto IP addresses and use ASNs for IDR and prefixes for intradomain routing only. > Greets, > Jeroen > > (who simply would like a policy where endsites that want it could > request a /48 or /40 depending on requirements from a dedicated block > which one day might be used for identity purposes and not pop up in the > bgp tables or whatever we have then anymore....) > I would, for one. Policy proposal 2005-1 (I am the author) comes reasonably close to that. It will be discussed at the ARIN policy meeting in Montreal in April.
