What is your proposal for numbering exchange points in a more aggregatable fashion? An exchange point is about as multi-homed as they come, and as you know multi-homed nets "break aggregation" anyway. I suppose you could take the address for the EP medium out of one of the attached providers' address space, but that's a small improvement at best (and a hole at worst, if that provider later disconnects from the EP). BTW, I agree as to the non-utility of ep.net. --John
