RE: [RRG] Consensus? Router-based Translation schemes can only work with duplicate address space
While I am impressed with your stamina, I'll save folks time here
and say that again I disagree with many of the premises that
- Translation schemes might make packets longer, depending
on the design. Consider IPv4::IPv6 translation for example,
where the packet header increases significantly in size.
- We agree that tunnelling has various issues, but they are part
of the architectural tradeoffs for the group to evaluate. All
proposed approaches have tradeoffs, as near as I can tell.
% This looks like a robust theoretical argument why a router-based
% translation scheme can never be efficient or robust unless it uses
% duplicate address space - which means such an approach
% cannot be practical for IPv4.
Kindly consider NAT/NAPT/similar devices, which many folks dislike,
but which continue to be widely deployed and used -- with many
folks finding the tradeoffs acceptable, the deployment efficient
enough and robust enough. These boxes are fundamentally
translation systems and are a counter-example for your
bold claim quoted above.
