RE: [RRG] loc/id split and LISP
Catching up from the national holiday...
In my opinion, the most important point should not be whether LISP or DNS/IP
is nature identifier/locator split solution. It should be what benefit LISP
can bring us. For me, LISP partly solves the routing convergence issue with
the minimum modification on the current Internet architecture. Of course,
LISP could introduce another namespace in order to be a real
identifier/locator split solution, actually there are such approaches, but
that would be too expensive to be deployed. LISP is not the best solution,
but it is the most realistic in a short term. It is a result of compromise.
