My crystal ball leans differently. I have trouble imagining the RIRs
successfully telling everyone they are no longer giving out PI
addresses, and that instead sites should convert all of their endpoints
to using some new software ... especially if the proposed solution
doesn't take away the burden of renumbering when they change providers.
