I think this proposal preserves the multihomed / non-multihomed 
distinction (while eliminating the distinction between multihomed ISPs 
and multihomed end user networks, for example).  Do you feel that the 
proposal makes / fails to make any distinctions it shouldn't/should?

I'm looking forward to your feedback on the proposal itself.

Thanks,
Scott
