There's a clever way around all this - just expand the available IP address space.
Let's call it IPv6 :-)|
The routing issues will still be ugly, though, and there's
likely no way around *that* one. Distributing address space by network connectivity
leads to the same sort of problems we have now (lack of portability, routers that
can't keep up). Distributing address space on a geographical basis (say, give a couple
billion to the US, a couple billion to Asia, etc.) isn't any better.
IPv6 routers will be more robust, able to relate to a few hundred thousand entries,
rendering the issue moot. But I'm not optimistic; there's no percentage in this kind
So... anyone have any *good* ideas?
