as, imiho, all this stuff except for IXen is absolutely useless, i see no
need to extend it to v6.

the dns protocols provide the redundancy to handle the dns servers as well
as a 'golden' space.  if you think otherwise, please describe your failure
model.

why the heck do rirs need special address space?  they can justify it like
the rest of us.  eat your own dog food.

and why does icann need any address space at all?  after all, they have usa
today!  :-)/2

but i do see micro-allocations for ixen as very useful.
