Re: [RRG] Separation vs. Elimination
Hi Dr. Blake,
Thank you for the comments. In response, I will try to clarify our
definition of 'separation' and 'elimination'.

Elimination refers to eliminating the use of PI addresses. Separation
does not eliminate the use of PI, but places PI outside of routable
space which requires a mapping.
So either get all edge sites off of PI(elimination) or let them use PI
and map/resolve their addresses somehow to a routable PA

The definition is not inconsistent(see above). The utility of the
definition and categorization I'll leave for others to judge. There are
schemes that fall under elimination - they don't use unroutable PI and
thus need no PI->PA mapping. For awhile, multipath transport was
discussed(not necessarily by the authors) as a way to eliminate the need
for PI to support multihoming, which would hopefully get edge sites off
of PI and into PA, thus relieving our scalability issue.
Thank you again for taking time to review our work. All further
comments are welcome.
