[ppml] 2005-1 status
I find the re-working of this proposal as shown here, to be of little
or no value. It gives no explination of what criteria there would be for
obtaining more then a /48.
In general as it relates to this and the earlier version, I object to
the use of the term 'large/complex end sites', since, the biggest need for
these types of direct assignments are for multi homed orginizations, not a
a 'end site'. I belive this policy should be addressing the need of the
'large/complex orginzation' that doesn't want to have their IPv6 address
space directly tied to a ISP/LIR. In my mind, these should not be
considered 'end sites'.
Either way, it seems to me we aren't anywhere near consensus on
this issue, and I don't think this re-work gets us any closer.
