[ppml] Multihome Pro Con Document

Outside of the IETF I have been in brief contact with two new groups that are forming to look at these routing issues.  They have not publicly announced their existance yet (as far as I know), and I do not see it my place to do so.  However, I will do my best to collaborate with them and keep my document updated with what comes out of those groups.  As for IETF, yes, there is discussion regarding this subject going on in V6WG OPS and a document is being worked on.  Should the discussion grow into a new WG?  Possibly, and with input from the community this very well could happen.

Thank you

My understanding of the problem (I don't work on a default-free
network anymore) is that keeping up with changes is expensive
in CPU, not in memory, and that lookups against a large table
are expensive in latency.

What is the appropriate IETF WG for design of IPv6 multihoming
solutions?  shim6 is a specific solution; v6ops doesn't sound
quite right.
