The first sentence doesn't make sense to me, because a design that
limits the routing scope of edge site addresses makes PI possible, so
the RRG work is not a waste of time. The second point, that when fixing
Internet-wide routing and addressing you can't assume any changes in
endpoints that require users to take action, makes perfect sense.

First, any deployment plan that depends on forcing users to do something
by restricting their choices isn't going to work. How will you convince
their upstream provders to tell them they can't have what they want?
It's not going to happen until there is a disaster and they truly can't.
Second, I think we already figured out that having to renumber whole
sites, including all the policy configuration, is bad. PI avoids that.
You just need to limit the scope of their advertisement.

Why do you say this? An addressing architecture that eliminates PI is
one possibility, but not the only one. Are we having terminology
