Ok, after a more careful look at the mailing list, I see that we started the
discussion and we haven't done a formal consensus check, so I'd like to
retract that. We did discuss and I do have some proposed text that I think
captures where we are, but we haven't been formal about it.

You are, of course, welcome to your opinion. However, IMHO, it is
inappropriate to use IPv4 as a proving ground. We cannot reasonably ask the
entire world to change routing architectures *as an experiment*. We need to
perform experiments to be sure, and they may be done on v4, but by the time
that we reach the scale of the entire network, we should be extremely
certain of the outcome.
Thus, I feel that the real overriding requirement is that we have a solution
applicable to v6.
